At J.P. Morgans annual meeting in Florida on Tuesday afternoon seemed to go fairly well for Jamie Dimon. Nearly 70 percent of of shareholders voted Dimon to continue both chairman and CEO of the company.
According to The New York Times, Mr. Dimon plans to marshal the momentum from the shareholder victory to try strengthening the banks compliance and audit control. He will be redoubling his efforts towards repairing J.P. Morgans relationships with regulators, fortifying risk controls and bolstering the banks businesses.

You graduated from college with a degree that you imagined ever since you were a child. You receive a call stating you got the job. You’re six months in and you already hate it. The pay is good but your boss acts like he doesn’t like you, your co workers ignore you and you dread waking up everyday knowing you have to go.
The question we ask at Torrey and Gray is, why? Why end your job search with something that doesn’t completely satisfy you?
Every boss has their “favorite” employee, whether they admit it or not. Not much fun to watch right? Its always nice to have a better relationship with your boss without brown nosing or feeling the need to suck up. Your boss is the one person who has direct control over your work life. So impressing them may allow you to get ahead at work; maybe by boosting into a better position or even get transferred into a higher company. So lets stay positive, proactive and motivated and maybe you’ll have a shot for improvement in your future.
The article The 10 Things You Are Doing to Wreck Your Job Search by Lindsey Olson shares multiple ways to help your job search end a lot quicker. The recruiters at Torrey and Gray define 3 of those reasons and explain why we feel they are the most important.
You only look when you’re desperate: Preparing yourself for a situation like quitting your job or getting fired without a backup plan can be prevented if networking is intended while still employed. Keeping your LinkedIn profile updated will allow the recruiters at Torrey and Gray match you with a company that suits you best. That way, if you feel the company you currently work for isn’t working out any longer, you’ll have a possibility for other options before ending up unemployed and in a sticky situation.
Your online profiles are weak: Whether it is LinkedIn, Facebook. CareerBuilder’s etc. displaying a weak and unattractive profile will decrease your views by companies and/or recruiters. So when searching for a new position, make sure your profile displays a professional picture of yourself, information that is suitable for the position that you are searching and don’t be afraid to get involved with discussions to help gain networking.
You’re just too picky: We all want our “dream” job and we all have our ideal salary right? But denying something right away without even testing the waters will make your job search extend or just worsen it overall. The recruiters at Torrey and Gray only consider positions to candidates that they feel would fit them best. So instead of jumping to conclusion, see what the company has to offer before making any rash decisions.
Chief Executive Officer, Reed Hasting is being investigated due to his act on displaying information about the Netflix Inc. metrics on a recent Facebook post.

The way to decrease this happening to you is to get all confidential information analyzed by Regulation FD before making personal information available to the public.
