Re: KLIC

Thoughts

First thought is, "why this stock?"

Semiconductor equipment manufacturers and EDA companies follow the fortures of the semiconductor manufactors, but squared. So a purchase of KLIC at this time is a [more]

Re: Resume: most-recent experience or most-relevant

On my resume, should I list my experience from most recent, or should I list my most relevant experience?

If it were me, I would have three sections to the resume:

Re: great signage

My favorite is the lawyer, Sue Yoo.

There's a urologist practicing in Austin, TX named Dick Chopp. He is the man to see for a vacectomy. I was surprised to see he isn't on the list.

Re: UTILITIES FUND

So, why did you buy this fund in the first place? What were you goals? Were you chasing yield? Did you have a specific interest in the utilities sector?

I have a checklist I run down when I buy a stock. Among the things I list off are the [more]

Re: Holes in resume ... what have you been doing

Just curious, what exactly should I ask in the interview? Or should I wait and see if the interviewer cues me to fill in the gaps?

Sorry, I meant "I, the interviewer" not "I, the candidate".

Re: is ESPN pro-creation?

I think ESPN was offended that Law suggested that science was more important than baseball. Also, not a good idea to get into a Twitter fight with your cow orkers.

Re: Holes in resume ... what have you been doing?

Can anyone shed some light on what a potential recruiter / employer might think or ask?

Significant gaps in dates, or no dates at all, imply you are hiding something. I would ask about this in the interview. For an entry-level [more]

Re: explaining quitting just because

I'm putting in my notice around the middle of December. I'm not going to another job, or back to school or starting my own business. I'm quitting because I hate the job and have for almost 2 years now. I know my boss/co-workers will want a reason [more]

Re: The pocket-sized TOOLBOX: £50 survival kits

"Small" is a relative term. The VSSLs are about 8 inches long, roughly the size of a standard flashlight.

Re: Solar Panels

Re: Money Concerns @ $125K/yr.

Mortgage -- $2,700.

This is high. Even in Texas, with Texas-sized property tax payments, this is high. In Plano I'd reasonably expect to pay $5000 a year in property tax, and maybe $1500 more for homeowners insurance. This means he's [more]
