Since I spend so much time beyotching about the workplace, careers and other B.S. (apologies for being triply-redundant), I thought it would be cool to learn more about YOUs and what you do.
Yet, of course, in true O.C. fashion, this spoiled batch of greatness could never survive everyone else sharing their cool stuff sans my seventy-five cents...
Yes, The 'Cuse (hated it!) and UMCP (loved it!); Journalism major - Public Relations focus
2. Is that degree earning its keep?
Uh, kinda sorta. I worked in PR and am now writing... I can promote (read whore) the hell out of anything, including mahself!
3. What's my current job & industry?
Trading floor assistant/finance
4. How much longer do I plan to stay?
In this position? 4-8 months... If I hear 'that's really great, Cocoa, you rock!' over a successfully delivered officedepot.com order ONE MORE TIME, I am going to snap! At the firm? I dunno...there's a lot of money here...
5. What was my last job and why did I leave?
Public Relations AE. I wanted to write and publish a book and the crazy schedule just wouldn't allow it. I also was tired of the anti-black air of the 97-percent white industry. Oh, I also didn't want to work with 85.5 percent women (those killa-Beckies were the absolute worst!)
6. What's my dream job & am I there yet?
Weekly newspaper columnist and broadcast commentator, allowed to say whatever the f$ck I want...just so long as it's witty, honest, irreverent and non-racist and non-religiously offensive ('cept, scientology is NON exempt)... I'm getting there...
7. The longest time I've spent at one job...the shortest?
16 mos/3 mos (no, it's not a typo!)
8. How many employers have you had?
4 in 5 years (hey - abandon judgement!)
9. Have you ever been fired?
Um... I'd have to direct you here
