I have just got an options trader job at a prop trading firm. But I knew nothing about options/trading/finance. The firms said they’ll be officially training us once we start. But in the meantime, what are some books/resources that you would recommend to start learning first?

I’m working for a staffing firm that specializes in placing Finance+Accounting candidates on the client side. I’m curious from others in similar fields, how long did it take to build a book of business and start making commission?! This is my first sales job and although the training was pretty extensive, I’m having a hard time gaining traction. I feel like no one answers me! Any suggestions? What’s worked for you? What hasn’t? How do you make sure you stand out?

Hi everyone! I’m a young professional right out of college getting into investing and personal finance management. Trying to better understand and educate myself on personal finance and investment strategies. Can someone recommend some recourses (books, podcasts, experts to follow, etc.) where it’s clearly explained for beginners? Trying to make sense of 401Ks, Roth IRAs, emergency funds etc.
Like I’m looking for someone like Dave Ramsey but for investment and money management advice.

I'm doing my internship at Simon-Kucher (4 months), and love the job I do. However, the super long working hours (like 14 hours/day) is killing me, and gives me no space to improve myself or even reading a book. Now, I'm offered an internship role, including a full-time job offer, from P&G's Finance department. Though I'm not a fan of finance, P&G is also a good company despite the lower salary and offers me a nice career path. What do you think?

What companies are holding (in their BS) the debt to finance the 2020-2021 boom for used RVs, used light aircrafts, luxury cars (used cars in general), used boats, art, etc.

Typically these type of loans are securitized and sold to 401k/mutual fund investments. However, that is not always the case (e.g. Carvana). I also heard yesterday from finance expert that BOA holds all loans thry issued.

Partners - I'm (SM5) an introvert and struggle to connect with people sometimes. Especially when I don't see them much (thanks covid) and don't work with them much. I want to build connections with like VP finance or the CFO on my job but I work mostly with the controllers (whom I have good connections with). I find it awkward to call people who I don't work directly much without out of the blue to do coffee or lunch.

Any tips or advice on how to build these connections? Any podcast or books
