Not making enough money in trading -----> Looking for a job>>PLEASE HELP!!

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by Iwilldoit, Jul 21, 2016.

  1. Hello,

    I have been trading full time for the past three years, recently have been profitable, but of course the earnings from trading are not sufficient to sustain myself.

    Therefore I am exploring what would be a suitable job to earn a regular salary, whilst also allowing me to continue trading as a side hobby (which most of you on here treat it as).

    About me:

    My concerns:
    1. I need a job that pays fairly well (Not necessarily $100K
    2. I need a job that doesnt take over my life---> I get to go home at 17h00, and have my weekends (to hopefully spend on my trading hobby)
    3. Should be white job, but I will entertain certain businesses.

    Thank you so much for helping me out guys...

    This is a serious thread, please no dumb recommendations please.

  2. Be an online Guru -- or make crazy Youtube videos. -- create a following somehow, and be an internet celebrity -- just like those girls who give makeup tips
  3. Can you be SERIOUS PLEASE???
  4. ...I am. o_O;)
    I know it may seem silly, but it's an option. -- all of those web stars, started out as nothing like you. (no offense)

    All you need is a camera...and start talking your given topic of choice. --
    alot of people on youtube have a huge following and views and ad revenues.

    IMO ....... A trade would be better than a white collar type of job, like an Electrician. After a 4-year apprenticeship you get your ticket and can work almost anywhere. It's important to have something you can fall back on if the trading doesn't work out.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your opinion.

    You sure that is a wise idea, given I have spent four years doing a business degree and one year gaining experience as an accountant?

    • What's the employment situation like in your chosen profession?
    • Does the school have some sort of job placement program?

    • You are almost guaranteed employment in some sort of trade.
    • The pay is good and you are paid as you learn.
    • Taking a pre-apprenticeship course isn't necessary but it helps at first to get hired.
    • If you are persistent you could get hired as a 1-year apprentice without a pre-apprenticeship course.
    • The above applies to Western Canada, maybe in Eastern Canada as well - I see you are from Ontario.

    The OP appears to be having seconds thoughts about accounting.
