9780060734800: 100 Bullshit Jobs... and How to Get Them

The people lucky and skilful enough to have secured bullshit employment are everywhere, in virtually every field from ayurvedic healing to zoo management. The folks who work in these coveted bullshit positions enjoy the best lives imaginable - they are paid well, they work very little and their professions are highly respected, because nobody really knows what they do. What, for instance, does an aromatherapist actually do? Sniff things? Yes! For big, fragrant bucks, that's what!When the Executive Vice President of New Media gives you his card, what is he offering? Who knows? Vaporware! For six figures plus a fat bonus, in reward for the quality and size of the digital bullshit he's capable of marketing. What is a clinical psychologist actually doing when he or she is nodding at a suffering depressive? Nodding, that's all. For GBP150 an hour! Now that is bullshit. And you can get into a big pile of it, too, thanks to Stanley Bing, who knows whereof he speaks and has based his entire career and several best-selling books on his own very special brand of bullshit.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 188 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The scholarly discipline of Bullshit Studies has blossomed in the last several years, fertilized by a number of critical works on the subject and the growing importance of the issue across a wide range of professions. Now, best-selling author and lifelong practitioner Stanley Bing enters the field with a comprehensive look at the many attractive jobs now available to those who are serious about their bullshit and prepared to dedicate their working life to it. What, Bing inquires, do a feng shui consultant, new media executive, wine steward, department store greeter, and Vice President of the United States have in common? What, too, are the actual duties performed by a McKinsey consultant? Other than sitting around making people nervous? Could that possibly be his core function? Likewise, what does an aromatherapist actually do, per se? Sniff things and rub them on people, for big fragrant bucks? Is that all? The answer in all cases is Yes. They all have bullshit jobs. These few, of course, are just the beginning. Across the length and breadth of this shrinking globe, skillful bullshit artists have secured pleasant, lucrative employment, and are enjoying themselves more than you are. In virtually every occupation, from Advertising to Yoga Franchising, lucky individuals who work in these coveted positions enjoy the best lives imaginable -- they are paid well, they rarely break a sweat, and their professions are highly respected, because nobody really knows what they do. At once funny, useful, and tolerably philosophical, this groundbreaking work takes a close look at 100 bullshit jobs -- the money they bring with them, the actual tasks and activities involved (if any), and famous and successful examples of each position, who will provide the neophyte with inspiration. Most crucially, Bing goes on to offer what others so far have not--a clear, concise strategy to help job-seekers at every level reach for that brass ring, knowing full well that it may be attached to the nose of a bull.
