    Career Advice - useful and meaningful short qualifications for finance jobs

    Hi everyone,

    I was hoping to dip into the font of Carbonite knowledge - would anyone know of any worthwhile (good value and application) courses that I could take that would add value or help me advance in the finance sector (not financial advice but more around the admin/numbers side).

    I do have my RE5 already and a BCom.

    Much appreciated!
    I am in deep fire but think that I see land ahead.

    I would like to find work in a stable part of the Middle East. I know a few SA people there but if you ask for advice or help they run a mile like you coming to steal their jobs or some shit but this seems to be SA folk all over..

    Really hoping to find a recruiter to guide me here in SA.

    Credit insurance (which I thoroughly enjoy) - there is really nothing more than the RE exams in SA.

    I was hoping someone could know something that could help build up knowledge that could be useful and relevant'ish

    I'v got no knowledge on the subject unfort, but where do you see yourself going with your career? Eventually starting a company? Working your way up the corporate ladder? Moving overseas? I'd say think about that if you've not done so, and then workout how you will bridge the gap. Off the top of my head I would think that learning way to automate tasks would go along way.

    Heard a story recently of some dude who was hired to do some data analysis work and had a programming background, so he automated the task and could get all his work done in ~15min per day with 99% accuracy, when the others in his department would take a week and have ~70% accuracy. Needless to say the others felt threatened and singled him out at "lazy"...
