    i'm a client relationship manager for a company that produces and sells portfolio rebalancing software to registered investment advisors and small firms. I train the new clients how to use the software and use it to optimize their business. i also do beta testing on new software features and functions and work directly with the developers to improve the product.

    just be sure you're comfortable and secure in your job before you go broke on a new house/new car

    yeah, a few shifts. I'm in a good position. My last company sucked, and I got shit pay (Like really shit pay) so when this offer came along, I didn't negotiate - I sprung on it like a cat on catnip. Not foolish, because now I offer such a service at such a low cost that they love me.

    Priced into the market FTW. I make $4666 and get paid once a month.

    How tax-friendly is your state? - Apr. 12, 2006

    connecticut is just a little above washington in least friendly tax states.

    how is this horseshit? is the $4666 before taxes?
    thats the thing, i'm not a help desk. I'm a manager of a team. I do ALL the training for people who pay thousands of dollars for software. plus i have experience, a degree, and was a financial advisor. i was made for this position.
