Bulls**t Job of the Day

A reader from Oregon writes: Marketing Communicaions Manager for a high tech company. It pays well, $80,000 and above. You don't have to produce a single thing, just look busy behind closed doors. No one can figure out exactly what it is you do, but when you produce a quarterly report, they go "aaah!' It's a job for people with organizational skills and who don't mind going nowhere in their careers.
Hey! Don't be shy! Nominate your job to join the roster of Bullshit Jobs! Just keep the criteria in mind. A Bullshit Job is not a BAD job. It's a good one. It's a job where you get decent pay, pretty good hours, and possibly even prestige, in exchange for, well... bullshit. For instance, the guy who watches the dials at a water treatment plant has a bullshit job. The guy who changes the water in Mike Bloomberg's fish tank has one too. So does a McKinsey consultant about 98% of the time. Hey, come to think of it, I have a whole book about it if you want to do more research. Go to the book area of this site and look it up. There's just too much bullshit involved for me to supply the link right now.
