I pursued my B.S. in Business Administration minoring in Computer Science from '99 - '03; however a life threating accident left me hospitalized and wounded for months, not allowing for me to finish my degree. With an outstanding sales track record selling health memberships during this college, I transitioned to the Financial Industry selling financial products and services for a retail bank. I aggressively worked my way up through performance and by '07, I enrolled into an expensive, but amazing private college to finish my degree; 71 credits were transferred from prior school. Concurrently I landed a management position with one of the largest retail banks in Northern New England and as always, my performance and achievements moved me three levels up in a short time-frame: far exceeding all goals in growing personal and business deposits, selling Mortgages, Home Equity Loans, Commercial Loans, and becoming a Licensed Advisor, I now firmly believe that one is victim of one's success. I was laid off in late '10 for reasons that may amaze Hiring Managers. Although I was encouraged to pursue my education when I started, as my responsibilities grew, that encouragement fell to the point that I was "un-officially asked to leave". It has been almost one year now and interviewed with no less than 20 companies and not one single offer has been made... My school schedule does not conflict with any working hours, I carry a portfolio with tangible proof of my successes if needed, I can probably write a book on interviewing etiquette by now, and I have reached the end of the line. Facebook, LinkedIn networking... every day. It is obvious that I have a unique case; however if anyone can provide any insight or suggestions, I am in debt with you forever. Specially after taking the time to read all this! Thank you.

I have an interview for an internal audit position with a casino coming up. This will be my first such interview in this field since finishing my degree in accounting. What kind of questions can I expect of them to ask or test me on?

I want to thank each reader in advance for his or her suggestions. I am in a serious need of your advice in my situation with life and career. I am a recent graduate of B.S. Electrical Engineering. My wife and I were planning for a long time to move to the east coast (southeast) after my graduation since her family lives there. I graduated from the west coast (CA). We went through some tough times in the west coast and started to really dislike it and wanted a fresh start in life and be close to some family as well.
After my graduation, we moved to the east coast and I got my first job as an Engineer (in the Power Energy industry) after 3 months of being in the east coast but only after a month, I started to really dislike the job and the job environment. I kept on working at the job to see if time might make it better. The job required a lot of outside work (50%+) on a daily basis and driving to remote locations with a lot of electrical construction type of work year long. The fact that we were in the east coast close to some family was a blessing for us but we ended up in a very small east coast city and found it very different to the west coast. Shortly after that, one of my references called me regarding a job opportunity in the same west coast city where we lived with the company interested in me. I had done an internship with this company while in school and knew the work would be ideal for me. I decided to fly back for an interview and got the job. They offered me $10k more and relocation with 2 year minimum employment. If I quit before 2 years, I would have to return the relocation cost to the company.
My question is: what would you recommend that we do in our situation? We moved back to west coast thinking we would settle down here and make it happen but we find that we just aren’t HAPPY here! Should we try again in 6 months to a year?

I have an interview with Wells Fargo for their Consumer Loan Underwriter 1 position.
I do not have direct experience with underwriting however, I have 3 years in the mortgage industry and 2 years relative experience in collections where we needed to possess strong analytical skills and strong math skills.
I am very excited yet nervous about this interview so I have a few questions to better prepare myself.
from what I've read in other forums there is a skills test.
-What kind of math & arithmetic questions does it ask?
-Do they allow you to use a calculator?
-How much time do they give you on the test?
Any other information you can provide regarding this particular position or any other underwriting experience. Please feel free to add it here.
Thank you for reading, your time is greatly appreciated.

Im considering become an rn but I don't know if I'll like it. I'm a guy and I heard people look down on you for being a male nurse.. I heard that it's stressful too.
I like helping people, but mainly I like helping people with their problems in life. Like if someone is having problems with their friends or something I like to help them with how they can make things better. is there a part of nursing that you do that type of stuff? I think I could also like helping sick people too though.
Also.. I don't like dealing with blood and stuff. I mean, I can but it kind of grosses me out. Do you get over that stuff when you start in school? Like after a while do you just become desensitized to it?
Also what is the advantages of becoming an rn with just an associates compared to one with bsn?
Is it just with a bsn you get to work in different areas of nursing or something?
Do the people you work with treat you bad cuz you aren't a physician or don't have as much education as them? Or do they just treat you like normal? I've heard a lot that you're treated like crap from them, is that true?
Right now im a senior in high school and thinking about what I should do in my future as a career.
I know I have a lot of questions.. but if you could answer them it would be greatly appreciated.
