It looks like the Web site Freecareersearch.com has uploaded a quickie video on YouTube to promote their site. And quite honestly, we haven’t poked around the site long enough to make a judgement on whether or not it’s worth your time. However, one thing DID jump out at us.
The video depicts a woman selling peanuts, which the site bills as “the worst job ever.” And maybe it is. But have they considered the other side of the nut?
She’s independent; Might be her own boss; Might make her own hours; Maybe takes pride in offering the most freshly-roasted game in town, etc.
It’s so easy to piss on someone else’s job. But maybe they don’t dislike it as much as you think they do. What also grabbed my attention is the following – the video has the following tags associated with it (chosen by the poster):
Peanuts; Career; Job; Food; Funny; Goofy; Business Transactions; Depression; Xenophobia; Carelessness: Cultural: Sensitvity: Cult
Weird. And I’m not calling these guys out for doing anything wrong. I just wonder why a career-related video from a “legit” site would use tags such as Xenophobia (typically used to describe fear or dislike of foreigners or in general of people different from one’s self.)
I suggest you guys watch the video, check out their Web site and let me know if this is a little nutty. The Web is flooded with sketchy career sites and advice, we’re just trying to keep a little peace and order.
