Christopher Raymond has worked as both a financial analyst and as an economist, in the private sector as well as in academics, both teaching and in administration, in “permanent” full-time positions in five different countries. This does not even count all the part-time and/or sort-term postings he has had. In sum, I would say that he has had a varied and fulfilling career that has been both challenging and satisfying.

With respect to his career path, his values have changed considerably over time. For many years, he just wanted to try new things in new places. However, he eventually settled in southeast Asia. His focus now is on his students and his teaching. He deals with professional issues as they arise. In hindsight, He was lucky to have earned his post-graduate degrees at a young age, and to have been in a position to do so many things with his life.

If he could do it all over again, he would want to be a qualified accountant (CPA). The important thing is to get paid to do what you like to do. Plus, it is a huge advantage to have a degree or certificate that is internationally recognized and valued, so that you are free to go live and work anywhere in the world that you like.

Raymond is a private person who enjoys time alone, with books, or simply thinking. He also like to keep his life simple. He does not use “social media”, and he don’t even own a so-called “smart” phone. He should add, too, that get a great deal of satisfaction seeing AUPP’s students graduate and get on with their lives. He wishes them all the success in the world.
