    Going back for a masters?

    yeah - trying to get a MBA/JD combo ... want to do more IT/Finance Strategy ... still not 100% sold on the ROI and career advancement it will provide, but getting the interviews and such out of the way while i think it through. And hopefully they dont think this is how all workers dress. Sticking with the pocket square ... lol.

    Damn I want that tie Dawg. [​IMG]

    BB #1 stripe tie ... went for the the conservative option.

    Do you already have a CFA? I'm not one to give career advice, but alot of large financials are looking for both MBA's and CFA's, anyways good luck I hope it turns out well for you!

    Naah - dont have a CFA ... i dont do financial analysis so never got one .. Havent really used much of the Accounting major i got from college ... Been using the CS and Math majors rather.

    Since i work primarily with IT systems related to financial reporting all i needed was my CISA and CISSP... but i am kinda getting tired/bored with financial reporting, which is why i want to go into IT Strategy.

    But just looking online at the requirements of jobs i would like to do in the future, even within IT Strategy, i'm definitely seeing that some knowledge in Financial Analysis will help me a great deal. I really like IT more than Finance ... although i know having Financial experience makes for an easier and more diverse career progression path than IT (at least, thats what i think).

    Nah - thats what i am interviewing for today. I dont know if i could be a CFO ... i like Accounting, but not enough to be a CFO ... I like more business, IT and operations ... CIO, CTO, Chief Strategy Officer, COO ... yeah more like it.

    Are you hiring? I'll dress well to work.

    Yes definitely, one of my good friends works in the IT area of a large financial news provider, and they stress the importance of a CFA for that field, which I think allows you the ability to become a candidate for an IT development position in at an investment bank or hedgefund.

    Nii, unless you really want to practice as a lawyer and/or get a free ride to your JD accedidation institution of choice, don't do it. It's money simply wasted. You'll learn just as much necessary business info through the MBA.

    The coat is awesome. [​IMG]

    Think the sleeve length needs work ...


    Jacket also seems a fraction (just a fraction) short too. But the gun club colours are great and I adore the tie (source?).

    ...

    Pretty cool jacket fabric.

    LOVE this outfit. [​IMG]






    Trimmed the neckline on the 2-week(-ish) facial fuzz:
