DAVE SAYS

Better Safe than Is this an Emergency? Sorry

Who Is Dave Ramsey? Dave Ramsey is a personal money management expert, popular national radio personality and the author of three New York Times bestsellers – The Total Money Makeover, Financial Peace Revisited and More Than Enough. In them, Ramsey exemplifies his life’s work of teaching others how to be financially responsible, so they can acquire enough wealth to take care of loved ones, live prosperously into old age, and give generously to others. Ramsey knows first-hand what financial peace means in his own life, having lived living a true rags-toriches to rags-to-riches story. By age 26 he had established a $4,000,000 real estate portfolio, only to lose it by age 30. He has since rebuilt his financial life and now devotes himself full-time to helping ordinary people understand the forces behind their financial distress and how to set things right - financially, emotionally and spiritually. Ramsey offers life-changing financial advice as host of a nationally syndicated radio program, “The Dave Ramsey Show,” which is heard by three million listeners each week on more than 300 radio stations throughout the United States. His syndicated column, “Dave Says,” can be read in more than 250 publications worldwide. He resides with his wife, Sharon, and their three children, Denise, Rachel, and Daniel, in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dear Dave,

Dear Dave,

My wife and I are 70, and we have $950,000 in annuities in the market, plus $68,000 in our emergency fund. The only debt we have is our mortgage. I’m considering converting our stocks to a money market account to lower the risk. What do you think?

My wife just had our first child. As a result, we now have $2,500 in medical bills not covered by insurance. We’ve got $7,000 in our emergency fund, and I make about $25,000 a year. Should we dip into our savings for this or set up a payment plan with the hospital?

Dear Howard,

Dear Matthew,

There are two sides to this. One is the asset allocation method, where as you grow older you move away from equities like mutual funds toward safer, more conservative investments like money markets, bonds and certificates of deposit. This is standard financial planning theory.

Congratulations on your new baby! I know this is going to make the new year extra-special for you.

If I were in your situation, I’d write a check today and knock out that hospital bill. This definitely falls under the heading of “emergency” in my mind, so pay the bill and jump back into rebuildI disagree with that theory, and here’s why. ing your emergency fund.

Ask Diana If you have any questions about interviewing, hiring, or work, just email Ask Diana. I’d love to hear from you. Due to the volume of response, not every question will appear in the column, but most questions will receive an email response within 2 to 3 days.

Happy New Year! I hope 2013 is a wonderful year for all of you! Thank you for the advice, but it turns out I didn’t get the job. The HR rep came in halfway through my second interview and told me they had decided to look for someone with totally different education/experience -then escorted me out. (This was the interview where I was meeting with several of the company’s VP’s.) A week later, the job was reposted with the exact same education/ experience requirements that I had originally applied under; so that was a big fat lie. I just wish they had given me the real reason so it doesn’t blindside me the next time. -Springfield, Missouri Reader Wow, that’s weird. I’ve NEVER heard of a rep interrupting an interview to interact with the candidate. In fact, it sounds very strange. The fact that it was a second interview makes it

even more suspect. I have to believe that there was a trigger for this behavior. Do you remember exactly what was said right before the other rep entered the room? One company that I worked with would reject people based on the results of a test. The candidate would take the test, and the people who excelled would be scooped in for an interview. Those people who didn’t do as well were told to leave and wait for results. Of course, they then received a reject letter. There is really nothing you can do to get back in line for the job, but I wonder if you could email HR. You can tell her that you appreciate the time you were given and have no concerns about the job. After all, if they don’t want you - you don’t want them! However, you intend to keep interviewing and feel strongly that you must have done or said something wrong. Be very clear that you are no longer interested, and that you would never use anything against them. You simply want to know what happened so that you don’t do it again. They may not

BILINGUAL

reply because everyone is always so fearful of lawsuits or EEO complaints. If you sound non-confrontational enough, they may reply and give you valuable information. I’m sorry this happened to you. I interviewed for a position the other day where I was totally qualified. I had done exactly the same job for five years at my last company. I don’t want to sound like a victim and paranoid, but I think was rejected because I am not the same race as the manager. I know that I may be jumping to conclusions, but I was totally in the minority – I didn’t see anyone else like me in the whole building. I won’t make a big deal about it, but do you see much “reverse discrimination” in hiring? -Houston, Texas Reader

employment decisions is illegal. Companies must “make employment-related decisions based only on employment-related criteria.” If you truly believe that you were illegally rejected based solely on race, you need to contact the EEOC. No company is safe discriminating against any group – even when it is the dominant group. Sometimes you just have to wonder how long it will take people to just get over it.

Have a question for Diana?

askdiana@jobsparx.com

I don’t see very much discrimination of any sort. That doesn’t mean discrimination is gone, or that we are a color-blind society, but it does mean that most companies try to be fair. An Equal Employment Opportunity Commission press release that I read recently makes the point that discrimination against ANY group when you are making
