Lose your job but not your Identity
September 16, 2008 · 1 Comment
Get real folks—your job is not who you are! You have an identity besides being a stockbroker/waiter/banker/VP candidate. If you lose your job you are still a good person!!! Really—WE like you!!!!
So with the world crashing down around our heads these days and the candidates fighting about pigs and lipstick and faux beauty queens (note: one of the jobs4yourfiredass writers has been a teeny bit obsessed with all things political. Sorry about the lack of posts.) we want to get back to finding you a job!
As we’ve stated before, don’t take the first thing that comes along—if you can help it. I mean, if you have to take a job as a Port-a-Potti clean-up guy to save the house, then do it. BUT, if you have a little time, take a breather. Take a moment to figure out what the hell YOU want to do. I mean, if you already lost the SUV and the house, what’s your hurry???? Check out the top jobs from today’s headlines. Then take a nap. Check out the jobs again, have beer and then sleep on it. Tomorrow you could be right back to work and not even remember what your old boss looked like. It’s just a job. Get over it.
Hot off the presses!!!
