Okay, make a wish!
Blog Guy, you occasionally offer advice on jobs we should stay away from, and I wondered if you’ve seen anything recently.
Yes. This photo illustrates a very good example of a field not to pursue if you can avoid it.
Ah, so you’re speaking of the exciting field of holding some guy’s stinky feet in your face all day. Yes, your point is well-taken and I won’t be falling for that trick.
No, in terms of career advice, I was more talking about the dude who is actually being held upside-down in a hole in the street. THAT is the career to avoid.
How silly of me. I guess it can’t be much fun working upside-down with the blood rushing to your head, grabbing rubbish out of that hole. That’s what he’s doing?
No. According to our caption, he’s installing underground electric cables.
Seriously? Wait, I’m shuffling through glossy recruiting brochures from my career adviser.
Yes! Here it is! “The Exciting World of Installing Underground Electric Cables While Dangling by your Ankles.”
That’s the job. Just out of curiosity, how are they trying to sell it in the glossy brochure?
Let’s see, it says here, “Do you enjoy working outdoors but you’re tired of wasting money on sunglasses? Would you like to have tanned legs that will be the envy of all your friends?”
