I am your wings,

You are my crown;

We are the flame,

That burns

Through the clouds;

Let’s take this leap,

Not look around;

Submerged we are,

And further we drown.

          1. No wonder. The 21st century won’t ever be claimed the golden age of poetry ๐Ÿ™‚ The great feelings and the sublime have been taken away from mankind. But maybe I’m just a leftover romanticism dinosaur๐Ÿ˜

            1. No need to be. Take a cookie and look at these shining golden project stakeholder management deviations, how they chase the pretty little acceptance criteria of schedule baselines, and you know you’re wise๐Ÿ™‚

            2. Now we come to the real crucial point. What are the criteria for your choice of employees? And is there a fixed list of criteria for each kind of job an employee must meet? How do you get, let’s say it in the old fashioned way, obedient people while you explicitly search “independent and creative heads”?

            3. Each job has its own prerequisites. We select people based on skills and ability to communicate. There are certain jobs where communication doesn’t quite matter.
              Obedient people aren’t that productive, y’know, they don’t take risks; just follow orders. Independent/creative people focus on solutions rather than orders.
              I worked with both creative and obedient people and guess what? Obedient people sometimes become liabilities.
              We make sure the candidate has a stable work-life before and will stay with us for a while. It’s the commitment that matters, not obedience.


            4. Ah ok. I am trying to find a solution to the greatest enigma of my life. Why am I never chosen? I write applications by the dozens. Sometimes I am No. 2 or No. 3 (of several hundred), but I’m never No. 1. I can’t die before I found that out๐Ÿ˜Š


            5. The reasons vary, y’know..
              Your connections get you a job faster than your degree. In India, one of the major causes for unemployment is over population. There are hundreds of people competing for one job and many talented people are pushed back because of the crowd. You never know who gets hired and who doesn’t.
              Maybe the interviewer thought you were smarter than he was. This is a possibility too. ๐Ÿ™‚

            6. That would be flattering๐Ÿ˜ŠBut I go hungry in spite of all my smartness. Hmmm, in Germany it mustn’t be said aloud but men are still favourized. And the crowd is a problem here too. There are by far too many well educated people for a rather small amount of qualified jobs (and the trouble with consultants is that they are hired very often to help a company reduce manpower)๐Ÿ˜Š

            7. It’s easy for women to get hired here a recent study revealed that companies hire beautiful women so that productivity of men is improved.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
              I understand a company’s motive behind hiring consultants. Cost cutting.


            8. Ameen๐Ÿ™ƒIf a woman refuses to do a badly paid job, she is punished by state law. The badly paying company doesn’t suffer damage but will employ a still cheaper person, a Romanian for example, or a refugee.

            9. Where do you live? In the mid-1980s? ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„No, in fact today’s Germany has adopted some “Best Practice” schemes from the communist GDR and from the Third Reich. People have to claim jobless at the so-called Federal Job Agency, which exerts a merciless reign over 11 million jobless or underpaid Germans. Of course they can skip applying for support money from the Agency, but then they lose their social insurance. Still the social insurance will keep on adding a certain sum of membership fee month after month after month, whose amount depends on the amount of salary last earned. The system grants sufficient treatment in case of illness, injury or handicap, which is basically a benefit, but on the other hand it’s so expensive that no one is allowed to escape it.
