Herb, we need you to spearhead the project
Dear Blog Guy,
I know you’ve helped other recent graduates with career counseling. What are some signs I can watch for that might indicate how my career is going?
I find it’s often wise to check your mouth. For instance, if your job involves cramming snakes in your cake-hole, eating glass, having a nail pounded into your tongue or swallowing your own fist, it’s just possible you’re not on the CEO fast-track.
Another thing. If you opted for a career in the clergy, but you find yourself balancing on the sharp point of a spear, maybe you should try the next church up the road, instead. This is especially true if, like the dude in this photo, you’re being asked to smile at the same time.
