R- Increasing my volunteer hours to 100 will help me get a job and Universities will see that I did not just meet the minimum volunteer hours, I went above and beyond. This will help my chances in getting in.

The career I desire to pursue is an Investment Banker. I feel that this job fits my skills and abilities that I hope to improve, quite well. However, I am aware of the challenges, that come with this career. These challenges would be stress, and market volatility.

Being an Investment Banker could be very stressful, in many ways. One way is that your boss could have his expectations not be reasonable or correlate with reality. As he is my boss, I would need to find out a way of having his orders completed or else I might lose my job. This would put an enormous amount of pressure on me, and cause me to get very stressed. Being stressed can cause me to lose sleep, not be alert, and be unorganized. The way I would overcome this challenge would be to, firstly, confront my boss, with a presentation, and give him advice on what a more reasonable transaction would be, for the business and for himself. If this does not work than I will consult with my fellow workers on where to invest, and how much to invest, so the goal of my boss is reached.

Market volatility is when the Stocks are inconsistent in its trend, making it difficult for investment Bankers to advise on where to invest, so the company can flourish financially. An example of a situation of Market volatility, would be, if the stock market goes up one day, and then goes down for the next five, then up again, and then down again. If not careful, this can cause you responsible of making your business lose a tremendous amount of money. One way I could overcome this challenge, could be to pull out the stock market, and advise my boss to wait for the market to regain its consistency. However, if my boss declines this decision, than I would give advice to stay invested, in the current stock we have bought into, and not pay attention to the short-term fluctuations. This will take out the risk factor of investing into something new, and having it not work out.
