In early December I decided to take my career into my own hands. I wrote John Thain an email that I hoped would make any curious executive who takes an interest in junior people (a trait surprisingly rare) at least want to investigate further–I never heard back. I am biding my time and will most likely send a follow up when things die down a bit.
I work in a securitized product. I have a quantitative background and I have a strong set of hard, monetizable skills. I would classify my ability to understand and delve deep into the human issues and understand decisions from an inter-personal angle as very above average (trying to let modesty reign).
Ideally one should learn from this blog interesting little facts and get my insight. I love to debate things. As I write this text, early one morning, no entries written as of yet, I will set my expectations rather low–I doubt anyone will read this. But, if you’re seeing this, and you’re not me, then I was wrong in a very pleasant way.
I like to take simple things and extract insight from them. I also like to start with a premise and a very simple framework and see what falls out. If you have anything you would like to bring to my attention, ask me about, or otherwise discuss then please email me!
