    I manage a trading floor of about 25 proprietary day-traders.  Imagine a pre-school daycare center, where all the kids are spoiled brats, but instead of throwing toys around, they are throwing millions of dollars around on a whim.  I started as a prop-trader, but my trading is rather mediocre, so I moved into management, where I had more natural strengths.

    German science hates employing older people with experience.
    Their loss is my gain.
    However, I am a spinning instructor and work in several fitness clubs.
    I am basically a house dad which is fine with me..gives me time to build mountain bikes and train for the mountain bike races and I get to spend all kinds of time with my kids.
    My wife is in upper level management in big pharma, so we are good like that.

    To Chris the Marine: I started my PhD at 36 and finished in three years, so ou loads of time to achieve whatever it is you want. Don´t ever let anyone tell you otherwise.</div>
    This is just an update in that I have been employed as a postdoctoral researcher in molecular hematology since sept. 2006.

    Junior at University of Florida. Debating to finish up in accounting or go finance. If I go finance, I'll go for the MBA afterwards... accounting I'd go for the CPA. Only time will tell [​IMG] .

    Follow whatever path you want, but if I were you I would go into finance. Accounting bored me during school - I just graduated from PSU w/ B.S. degree in Math concentrated in Actuarial Sciences. As you can see, finance would really interest me. Even after school, I am still studying (for the SOA exams), and low and behold I am studying financial economics! [​IMG]

    Hi guys, I'm an Exercise Physiologist - so exercise is right in my ball park. I love this site (only recently found it), and am very big on training smarter not harder. I have mates on gear that cannot lift as much as me, so quite happy in that respect, but alas there getting big quick!

    I've done rehab, and worked in commercial gyms, and corporate health programs, currently working with exercise and chronic conditions (diabetes, heart disease, etc). So always happy to help a fellow member with any exercise/health related question (to the best of my ability), and if I don't know the answer - I have the tools, and contacts to find out (hopefully). Anyhow, drop me a PM.

    Cheers
    Jono

    Watch your back, Colby. I've worked with actuaries before at Mercer Meidinger (Marsh &amp; McLennan). I had a friend who worked for the Wyatt Company. Some of the nastiest people with whom I've ever had to do were actuaries (and I'm a lawyer...!).

    When they check your work, they'll keep copies of any mistakes you make and use them against you later. Just a word to the wise...

    Well, actuaries have to be detailed oriented with numbers! I've heard some bad things about Wyatt, and I have liked everything I have seen with Mercer. I may have gotten a job offer from Mercer, but I got an offer from the smaller firm first and decided to take it.
