Now I looked at a bunch of BB sites and they seem to have the same amount of divisions (maybe a little less). Now which divisions are the easiest to get a job with (that still pay good)?

I want to learn more about the back office and see how much the pay differs, life style etc.

Go for HR, that's where all the rollers are.

Either you sling crack rock or you got a wicked jump shot

Depends.
If you have:

a degree in Human Resource Management...then HR would be easiet

a degree in Computer Science...then Technology would be easiest

a degree in Accounting...then the Financial Control Group or Corporate Treasury
