Tongue in cheek... indeed. I'm writing a short workplace survival manual that might just be a great hit. The ironic part is that I can't even find a job or career as the case may be to test my thesis. That is where the tongue in cheek... comes in.
It might resonate with a lot of people who are unemployed and offer a few insights as to what works and what doesn't and why that might be the case. I can tell you it is better to be in the in, then not ... I'll keep you posted as the work comes together. You might just want a copy of the book/manual for yourself.
~ Enjoy! ~
