Currently at a supermajor, wondering about job security given low oil prices. Any thoughts?

I’m not an oil trader, but as far as the markets I’m trading are concerned, the price isn’t of concern if there is vol in the market.

Hard to say, but knowing that markets run based on efficient information leaves us to conclude that as parties gain more efficient ways to gather information it will get harder. Harder? Yes! Impossible? Not by a long shot! You also have to remember that your firm will likely have access to these more efficient data sets to put you as a trader in a position to succeed as successfully if not more than traders back in the 2000’s. This will happen across all of the commodities traded regardless of product. In the physical markets at least.

Yes, workplace trauma is a thing. Understudied, misunderstood, and detrimental.

Recently got brought on to work on a client's social media and don't have much experience besides drafting content. I work for a small agency that doesn't specialize in social media and we don't have an expert or dedicated team. Any recommendations for resources when it comes to learning about how to analyze metrics and performance? I want to be able to provide more than just content.

Bye bye Accenture, I joined about a year ago as an experienced hire and have been on a project about 6 months out of 13 (50% chargeability). The leadership needs a program to help experienced hire to adjust in the company. Consulting, the "networking", PowerPoint making isn't just for me. I have a technical background and was losing my skills since I joined. Accenture is a great company and I'd advise anyone to leverage the countless training provided.
