News, but not the serious kind
Climbing the career ladder one slice at a time
I’m getting e-mails from recent grads asking for career advice. They should start with my previous posts, but I do have some new tips, as well.
Please remember two of Bob’s career rules:
1. A good job will not involve anything squirting out of your eyes except maybe a contact lens. Certainly not milk, as seen here. Milk is meant to squirt out your nose, when you see something funny.
2. A good job will not generally involve a pole with sharp blades attached. Think of it this way: If there is some chance that your fingers will reach the ground before the rest of you, avoid the job. Unless you majored in Film Studies.
