    • "I am in my mid twenties, have a business degree; with a year of accounting experience."
    • you said you want a white collar, 100K job more or less...

    Apply at any of the personal income tax filing places, and ask for their trading division o_O:)
    but in all seriousness, you should lower your standards. -- take what you can, this isn't the exploding, roaring late 90's job marketplace.
    everyone now is a dime a dozen, disposable.
    unless, you graduated from a really really good college, with a desirable specific degree, and top grades, and can't really expect much in life.

    The biggest boom in business all over the world in the near future will be in marihuana. Get a job in that industry, like marihuana "trader".

  5. I am not sure if this is a serious post, or not.

    But if you read the instructions in the OP, I am referring to trading financial instruments, not illegal narcotics

    Thank You.

    Many countries and states in the US are on the verge of legalizing marihuana. Don't you follow any news? :rolleyes:Even Microsoft is entering this market. You think they want to be involved in illegal activities?:confused:
