The highest paid-position for an FDI-related career is here

Yesterday was the best performing day for since I started this website a year ago: achieved 5 likes per post. In a Day. While having a pat in my back, I am thrilled that WordPress is providing a pretty great reward system. It’s like being sent back to kindergarten once more and having teachers handing out small stamps for doing good works. Being amazed lately of how we are all fed with this scheme of rewards for a long time. In life, if you just look forward immediate, mediocrite rewards to just do something good, you would probably fit the rat race. I think it’s important to put in work sometimes even when it does not yield immediate results. Regardless, I do think it’s important to get rewards once and awhile to prove that you are doing something significant.

So despite the fact that I’m quite heaped up with reports and exams, I still “manage” to spend some extra time doing those kind of research that is interesting yet not that relevant. If I would be applying for a job, what would it be?

Personally, as much as I love thrill, I was thinking of those in between $60k-$100k would put me up with responsibilities. But these are worthwhile financial rewards, and as long as I match the skills (and passion) then I should be in a safe spot to go. However, nobody has ever told me what it is specifically required to be successful in these high-performance field. It’s true that we are all going to school for something, but without proper research and just leaving it up to faith after graduation is such an ignorant way of living.

This is where I search up FDI related job title via Easily, I could click through the highest pay range of the job pyramid: A position at JP Morgan Chase in LA. The job description is as follow:

Would you be able to perform them by yourself, or would you need to rely on the helps of others, and search for different resources to fill your gap? What I am thinking of is that, you would have to either test out yourself, and gain a lot of experiences. You can always copy and add these onto your own resume, but only you are the one who know whether you are confident with it or not.
