When you read job descriptions online on job sites, do you get the impression that everyone writes them as if they think their business is akin to an emergency room on a Saturday night? A Saturday night that happens to be St Patricks Day and someone has been giving out free guns along with the green beer?
Fast paced, multi-tasking, ability to prioritize, high energy, highly motivated....on and on.
As if every day when you get there until the time you leave your blood pressure is going to be sky high, and every decision made and action taken might change the direction of the free world.
I wish people would just write realistic job descriptions.
It's not like you're going to be setting up 15 international meetings over 5 time zones every day, or that the stock market is going to crash if you go to the break room to get a cup of tea.
On my conundrum thread, I just ranted about an interview on went on today for a 3 month project....it was ridiculous.
Oh....I feel another rant coming on....do you mind?
