gotta tell you, I saw on TV that a former CFO from one of the banks here in Charlotte was applying to be a part-time ticket taker at a (very) minor league baseball team here.

That is what the job market is in Charlotte, NC

I doubt you're qualified; ringing up sales would help the company make money and prosper and it seems those with finance degrees are only qualified to run companies into the ground.

HA you may think that. But the really ****ty thing is that people with finance degrees are actually making money off the stock market failing. So we might run them into the ground but we are still making money. Long live the short!

Before this is over speculators may get the short all right: a short rope and a long drop. Maybe literally.

I think pharmaceutical companies in the north suburbs, particularly Abbott, are faring better than other industries. If I were looking for a job, I'd probably start there....
