Hire Me — Please

April 3, 2008

I have had several people send me this video – so I guess I need to pass it along.  It may make you angry but frankly, I found it to be hilarious, as well as extremely well done. 

It’s been a couple of years now that I’ve been hammering the message that the workplace is changing.  And I keep running into people who are alarmed that things are not the way they used to be.  Just yesterday on a radio interview I had a caller who was distraught that he was losing his job after 27 years with the same company.  But then again, it is not the “same company.”  There have been multiple mergers and acquisitions along the way.  All his old bosses and co-workers are gone, yet he is angry that they are now pushing him out the door.  It should not come as a surprise – especially since his compensation has crept up over the years to $268,000.   This doesn’t mean he’s dead in the water.  It just means he better be aware of the new opportunities for “free agents.”  And then rock and roll.
