I have had the experience of working in commercial real estate as it went own the shitter, now have a decent job in finance as financial careers get shakier and zillions of applicants flood the market. Im seriously scrapping to get capitalized to the point that I can trade individually. When I get fired, which may happen any day, Im wondering where are the decent paying jobs? I feel like there isnt anything Im going to be able to "fall back on" (finance, real estate) and getting an MBA will just better prepare me to be in the same predicament. So Ive tried thinking outside of the box on this since Im either gong to get fired or get fed up with getting screwed $-wise and quit, but wasnt sure where to start. are we all going to have to go be roughnecks on oil rigs to get ahead? it must be cool they have a reality tv show about it. Maybe go be one of those slave laborers in Dubai doing construction and earn back some of my gas dollars. Teach english in Brazil... where the women are as sweet as the ethanol lol. intangibles... What are the lucrative niches now? any thoughts?
