You’ve decided that you want a new job or maybe even a new career. You’ve overhauled your resume and sharpened all the required skills in your chosen field. But so have all the other candidates for your dream job. So you need something to set you apart—just one more skill that the competition won’t have. Today on MoneyWise, Rob West and Steve Moore tell you just what that needed skill is and how to acquire it.
Next, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and Questions@MoneyWise.org about the following:
- My daughter is going through a bankruptcy, and I am a co-signer on one of her loans. Will that effect me or my credit score?
- My husband and I have a savings account for our 16-month-old daughter. The interest rate is too low. What can we do to make her money grow faster?
- I have credit card debt and a car loan. I’m struggling to know how to prioritize tithing. I like to pay my bills first thing when I get my paycheck, but then there’s nothing left for tithe.
- I’m 52 and recently closed out a Roth IRA to pay for my daughter’s education. Will I pay penalties on just the dividends?
- I recently received a large sum of money. I know I need to pay off my debts, but I also know I need to save for retirement. What’s the best use of this money?
