Office Lingo

“SEEKING CANDIDATES WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF EXPERIENCE: ” You’ll need it to replace three people who just left.

“PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS A MUST:” You’re walking into a company in perpetual chaos.

“REQUIRES TEAM LEADERSHIP SKILLS:” You’ll have the responsibilities of a manager, without the pay or respect.

“GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS:” Management communicates, you listen, figure out what they want and do.

“I’M EXTREMELY ADEPT AT ALL MANNER OF OFFICE ORGANIZATION:”I’ve used Microsoft Office.

“I’M HONEST, HARD-WORKING AND DEPENDABLE:” I pilfer office supplies.

“MY PERTINENT WORK EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:” I hope you don’t ask me about all the McJobs I’ve had.

“I TAKE PRIDE IN MY WORK:” I blame others for my mistakes.

“I’M PERSONABLE:” I give lots of unsolicited personal advice to co-workers.

“I’M EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL:” I carry a Day-Timer.

“I AM ADAPTABLE:” I’ve changed jobs a lot.

“I AM ON THE GO:” I’m never at my desk.

“I’M HIGHLY MOTIVATED TO SUCCEED:” The minute I find a better job, I’m outta there.

“I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU SOON:” Like, I’m gonna hold my breath waiting for your form letter thanking me “for my interest and wishing me luck in my future career”.

Friday humor.  I think this applies to all industries.
