Summer Job Advice: Get Fired

This article suggests that in at least a "few, highly publicized cases," the "underling tell-all" has succeeded in making the "public airing of workplace shenanigans" by said underling and subsequent firing of said underling a lucrative career move.

So, advice for the wide-eyed summer gopher, I mean, intern? Blog all about it, get fired, write a best-selling novel, sell the movie rights, and retire--without ever holding a real job.

Hey, it's that or do a really, really good job photocopying and buying coffee. And personally, the former option sounds much more appealing...

Um...just wait until AFTER the wedding to get fired. Oh, wait, that'll be too late...

Well, it'll save on college tuition!

Heh - my mother sent me the same article... just a day after a prospective employer asked my about my blog in a phone interview. Not sure if that was a plus or minus for me...

I mean, I think most people are wise enough to use discretion in what they post on their blogs and all is good. Though, if you're looking for a laugh, check out this intern tale.

Most people are *not* wise enough, which is surprising, but I think I've stayed out of trouble... (unless someone's VERY liberal).
