One of the positions I applied for is down to their final two candidates, but she said she's calling them tomorrow to see if they are looking for more candidates. She also noted on their internal system that I am willing to relocate to NYC and this might help me a bit with the out of state positions. This firm does have a great Trading Assistant position in NYC that I would love to have, hopefully I'm not too late. Next we talked about the future: basically check their site (and others) on a daily or 3 times per week basis and apply soon. Overall it was a good meeting and she gave me some tips. I'm probably going to email her more questions in the near future.
Net Worth Update
I haven't done one of these lately, so now is the time. My goal was to have $25,000 by the end of May and I did have this month but it was during the first week of June. I'm pleased with the results, but another goal won't be set until I have a job. Right now I'm trying to limit my expenses (like eating in, getting rid of a few subscriptions, etc.).
My net worth increased for a few reasons: getting some eBay money, increases in my portfolio, and getting some money back that was owed to me.
So here it goes:
- Bank: $1,835
- IRA : $ 55
- ING: $ 6,881
- Brokerage: $17,057
Definitely better than I expected. My portfolio is up almost 6%, but if I take out a recent addition the return goes up to almost 9%. I should get some software to figure out some time weighted returns....
My plan is to limit my expenses, make a few more eBay sales, and try not to spend too much. I mentioned that I might be going to Vegas in July- so that will be an expense (unless I get my cards...).
Also, a few more months and get ready for some NFL betting!
Awhile ago (a few weeks) I mentioned ARO at $27. Why don't I listen to myself? Today it's just near $33.
Also I'm going to add two more stocks to my watch list: MOT (Motorola) and SLE (Sara Lee).
I don't have any opinions on it, but Sara Lee has taken a beating and is now semi-cheap on P/S and sporting a near 4% yield. I'll check on it later though.
