Online Interview Trend?

by on Friday, June 16th, 2017

Now here is an interesting trend. I would say new trend, but I don’t know how long it’s been around. I recently applied for a part time job, working from home. Part of the application process is a video interview. You are sent a link in an email. It is suggested that you dress as you would for an in person interview because they can see you. You just can’t see them.

When you are ready you press the link and begin the interview. On the screen you will see questions. You take a minute to compose your response, press the button, and begin speaking to answer the question. I felt a little nervous and then felt foolish because I felt nervous. It was rather extensive, lasting an hour.

It’s interesting to think of the person on the other end whose job, perhaps, is to sit and watch these videos all day.
A second application required a much more detailed process. It was an online assessment which included percentages, vocabulary words I looked up, practice customer telephone calls and a typing test.

I hope I hear back from the company, because I would really like to work from home. Imagine, your work day taking place in your house, in your robe and slippers, with a big cup of coffee. Sweet deal!

Easy stock trades

by on Sunday, August 16th, 2009

In the dark ages I used to have to call my stock broker to make a trade or to buy some stock, and of course he got his cut first, someone had to pay for his new car. The best thing I have found in the last few years is online trading and First Trade is the very best online broker that I have found, they let me trade from home or work and do not charge me like the old stock brokers did, that is the part that I like the very best. Low cost and very easy to use, is a winner in my books. Stock trading is fun again thanks to First Trade.

Now that the stock market is on the rebound and I am back in the blck I am very willing to start stock trading again and I look forward to using First Trade to help me make more money and most of all I think that dabbling in the stock market is fun and a great way to make a little extra money too.

First Trade is a great online company that allows you to trade stocks, Mutual Funds, ETFs and Fixed Incomes at very competitive prices and that is what I am looking for in an online trading partner, check them out and see if they have what you are looking for in an online trading partner.

Getting my money back

by on Sunday, May 17th, 2009

With the hit that my 401K has taken this last year or so I have made the huge decision to get some help from an Online Broker, and try to save my retirement plan. I was able to transfer my money to Firstrade for free and that was a nice move on our part as far as I am concerned.

Online Trading is a huge business and I am pleased that I have found a great partner for this venture in Firstrade, they have become my stock trading advisor and online broker.  I think I can get back to level with my 401K with just a little smart money management and Firstrade has been giving me some great advise and I think we are on the right road to recovery in this troubled market.

Firstrade has shown me the path to getting my feet back under me and my money and now I just have to wait and see. I am very positive about this online trading move and I can not wait to see the results. Just a couple of months ago we were almost dead broke and starting over again from the bottom, and at almost 50 that is a very scary proposition for us.
