In the first case, someone’s working as an intern (unpaid) and works a night job to make some money - Schweser says this is a violation as it can be reasonably expected that this job will interefere with her ability to perform her internship
In the second case, someone’s working as an intern (little pay) and works as a waitress at a diner (popular with brokers, etc) and receives a bonus from her waitressing job - Schweser says, neither her working at the diner nor accepting an extra cheque is a violation as the job is not related to her main line of work i.e. finance
There was another case (I can’t remember source) where it was acceptable for someone to work Friday night and Saturday.
Seriously, WTF is the rule on doing part time jobs which are seen to be unrelated to investing/finance/trading/markets etc etc? And what is the definitive rule regarding accepting a salaary/bonus from a job that is not related to finance? And how can we possibly assess whether or not a part time job will reasonably interfere with one’s capability to their regular day job?
PS: I don’t generally moan about things but this is heights, I mean WTF!
