During a conference, I was pleasantly surprised to be seated next to a very handsome man. We flirted casually through dinner, then grew restless as the dignitaries gave speeches. During one particularly long-winded lecture, my new friend drew a # sign on a cocktail napkin. Elated, I wrote down my phone number.
Looking startled for a moment, he drew another # sign, this time adding an X to the upper-left-hand corner.
How do you get hiring managers to hire you?
1. Put up posters of yourself in the company parking lot.
2. Announced your candidacy with a singing telegram.
3. Rent a billboard which the hiring manager can see from his/her office, listing your qualifications.
4. Deliver prepaid Chinese food, including a fortune cookie with your name and phone number.
The height of bad luck...
Your battery is at 2% and you see your boss upload pictures of himself and his family...
Wanting to impress him, you quickly comment "cool pics" but auto correct changes it to "cool pigs"...
Just as your battery runs out.
