I sniff at "Restaurant Critic" and "Astrologer"
'restaurant critic' is one of the most worthy???
restaurant critic > film critic >>> gardening expert >>>>>>>>> wine expert >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> man who gives you advice about going on your holidays.
I don't think I've ever read a restaurant review. I'd much rather go by online ratings/reviews by the public when it comes to a restaurant.
Never met someone in HR who wasn't an underworked waste of space with little knowledge of employment law.
DiS is shit
Seems to be what most of the people who finish school, get a degree, but don't really have any idea of what they'd actually like to do end up doing.
At the counter in boots.

And anything to do with marketing
BECAUSE I'M ALLERGIC TO POLLEN!
I.E. I SNIFF AT IT!
I should really stop drinking at work.
but Recruitment for sure. And any engineer that's not Chemical, Instrument, Electronic, Mechanical, Civil, Structural, Systems or Process possibly, at a stretch, Software. Like... BOILER Engineer, or PERSONALITY Engineer, or PROJECT Engineer.

brokenchairs, wza - wait up!

My girlfirend's earned a bit of extra cash on the side doing this, but she'd never call it her ''job''.
i'd be darn happy if someone gave me some money for like appearing in a few catalogues
Don't you watch America's Next Top Model?
(Because i have hay fever!!! I actually really respect Gardeners)
anything that anyone can do but ends with the word 'expert'. the two above are like calling yourself an 'eating' expert or a 'walking' expert or 'breathing' expert
backing dancer. actually this would be fun, but limited
jobs with the word 'architect' at the end.
(apart from Architect, obviously)
mostly because it's so hit and miss- obviously some will get a better hit rate than others, but aside from a book of contacts and the ability to not fire off mental emails, what else do you need?! weird job
in it, there is a lot of hustling because it's a new area?
I was amazed when I found out aged 12 or so that they actually get paid. I always viewed it as more of a club/hobby. Still do really, so fair play to 'em for spinning it into a career.
There's a large amount of self-loathing involved in this.
Aww everyone must think you're lying all the time
Sorry Theos of the world, The Office destroyed any kudos your profession was still clinging to.
