This pretty much sums up my experience w/job hunting last year….

Are you searching work? Not just a job, but a career, something you can tell your grandkids about?? Are you tired of endlessly applying to jobs at companies who never call you back, or even acknowledge your application?

Why fight ’em when you can join ’em!

You could have a fabulous career in HR! Yes, you! Are you bad at follow up? Do you like hoarding power over people but can’t make the cut with the local police? Is your happy place determined by titles and keywords and cells in excel spreadsheet? Do you like like describing the failings of of others in exasperating yet passive aggressive detail? And hey, do you enjoy cataloging salient details of a good sexual harassment scandal (and, come on, who doesn’t)?

Then a career in HR might just be for you! HR requires no special education or skill set, just a willingness to obliquely belittle and threaten your fellow man. You can do it – you too can be a master of a tiny subset of a restricted universe!

(Offer void in companies with actual imagination, drive or basic intelligence.)
