• Countrywide Needs Some Help – Duh!

    By • Apr 30th, 2008 • Category: Internal Audit

    A faithful reader and friend brought these two ads to my attention this morning.

    Looks like they’re looking for both the #1 and #2 people. What happened to their primo position as risk management leaders per the IIA?

    Anyone know what happened to the incumbents? I would take the job. If they gave me a very hefty signing bonus. And relocation to California, first class airfare, bounce back clause,  a cheap mortgage with no doc and no money down…  And two years severance for every month served if they change their mind, are bought out, go bankrupt, decide they don’t like me, can’t take the heat, won’t let me wear stilettos or cheer for the White Sox…No job is too risky if they pay you enough under a good contract.
