Such a shift would no doubt delight business owners everywhere. There’s no law that says you have to pay animals for their work. You don’t really have to provide them health care coverage, either. And bird seed costs less than keeping the lights, water and heat running in an office setting. Think of the savings.
You hate your boss. You think he or she does a terrible job of managing employees, and that you could do a better job. More so, you think your boss is a psycho. You may not be wrong on that last one.
According to a peer-reviewed study by an undergraduate student, there could be a higher level of psychopaths in managerial positions because they are able to manipulate tests that companies give in ways that hide their true nature. So if your boss is manipulative, lacking of empathy, and a known liar, you may just have psychopath for a boss. We don’t suggest comparing business cards with them.
How many times have you wanted to quit your job, but found you were too lazy to get up from your desk and do it? Do you have a really intimidating boss, and just can’t stand to face him in person? Luckily, there’s an app for you.
The Quit Your Job app for iPhone does exactly what its name says. It quits your job for you, via text message. So now, instead of being all professional about it, or taking time to really think things through, you can be impulsive and passive aggressive.
Unfortunately, Quit Your Job does not have a Can I Count On You As A Reference? sister app just yet.
In 2007, or 2008, depending on who you ask, the bottom fell out of the U.S. economy, and the rest of the world came along with us for the ride. Since then, it’s been nothing but a stream of complaints from people who have lost their jobs, or recent college grads, who just realized this whole real world thing is, like, going to affect them.
But there’s great news, everyone, the American economy is back! Sure, you can listen to economists who said that the Great Recession ended a couple years ago, or you can try to wrap your head around the latest job reports. I’ve got a better idea. All you need to do is look around you for the signs.
And they’re right: even though all offshore drilling safety has been overseen by the Mineral Management Service, an organization that is still under investigationfor over 10 years of graft, we need to speed up safety inspections and put workers back on derricks.
Besides, this is about jobs. Every time there’s an accident, another oil job opens up!
If you’re getting down about not having a job, you’re not alone. The recession is getting people down, so down that they head to a local drinking establishment to drown their sorrows. Well, one New York bar is trying to help out their customers, and not just by numbing their senses with alcohol.
Ever been to a job fair? (Please, hold your applause. Thank you for that kind welcome back.) It’s a bunch of people walking around dressed in clothes nicer than they feel comfortable in, handing out resumes like candy.
From the potential employer’s standpoint, it is also a battle to get people’s attention. If they don’t come to your table, how can you hire them? You need an eye-catching gimmick. For the Lake County, Colorado Sheriff’s Department, that gimmick was free Tasering for volunteers.
About 30 high school students volunteered to be shocked with a Taser at a job fair because they wanted to feel what it was like. The deputy was suspended for a week.
