idiot_boss6A secretary was leaving the office one Friday evening when she encountered Mr. Jones, the Human Resources manager, standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.

‘Listen,’ said Mr. Jones, ‘this is important, and my secretary has already left. Can you make this thing work?’

‘Certainly,’ said the secreatry. She turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

‘Excellent, excellent!’ said Mr. Jones as his paper disappeared inside the machine. ‘I just need one copy.’

If you are a highly-skilled and experienced professional, who have been unable to find a suitable job in your area, perhaps you should consider looking elsewhere?  Have you ever considered looking for a job overseas?  Many don’t realize that there are positions open to Americans abroad: from the U.S. government and military, to U.S. corporations and non-profit organizations operating oversees.

America has always been a land of immigrants.  As a country, we were built by immigrants. In fact, the word “immigration” has become an integral part of our culture and a hot topic of many debates.  So much so that we have forgotten about “emigration” – the opposite process of people leaving the United States to look for a better life elsewhere.  Unfortunately, with the current economic conditions this is turning into a reality.
