but I really don't like to talk about when I worked in Thai orphanage as it makes my direct reports weep with admiration for me.
You have direct reports?
all the people in the do YOU receive any gifts thread.
get yourself on a people management course!
coming from you, handsy
eurgh I'm going to be sick
if your management tactics are the alternative...
Genuinely freaked out at the thought of you being a manager there.
it means I have to go to the conference...
I was being mean. C'mere and give me a big short-dressing-gowned hug
got first dibs on any decent clothes anyone brought in and a smug sense of wellbeing
No No No No
we'll reach for the sky!
no valley too deep, no mountain too high.
^fucking love that bit
won't give up the fight!
we do what we want and we do it with pride.
^ also love that bit
Wtf is wrong with you all??
week and a half work experience in publishing (obvs being a non-idiot it only took me that long to get a job). it was actually pretty good and actual-internshippy rather than monkey work, though.
got 'paid' a retainer for some of it
Or am I getting confused
you must have forgotten. Me mixing you up with someone is impossible.
...I used to do a few sets of annual accounts for free (mainly local residents' associations) plus tax returns for most of my self-employed mates. These days I don't even do my own accounts. Doesn't stop folk asking however.
the extent to which, it depends how you define it.
- Loads of writing for websites and magazines when I was trying to be a journalist.
- Work experience at a radio station.
- Internship at a political campaign group
- currently getting paid for 1 day a week on a community project, actually working 3-4
Ones dis will no doubt have an issue with:
- volunteering for the ol Labour Party
- 3 years working for a music festival that hasn't made any money yet (one day I will get paid literally tens of pounds for this)
- loads of gigs, playing and organising
they were nice but so obviously doing it to exploit desperate grads for free labour. worst.
you more or less have to to get anywhere in the heritage sector. Then when you do find paid work you generally get paid a pittance.
Litter picking beaches, hedge laying, path maintenance that sort of thing.
Value my own time too much, thanks very much.
Although actually I would love to do some pro bono work in my current job, but I'm not sure that counts since it's my company who'd be losing money, not me. Don't give a single fuck as long as I still get paid.
He's a right chippy little cunt
The other day in a meeting the temp (who is getting paid) joked about the volunteer's wages being docked to which she replied sarcastically "HAHA, it's funny because I'm not being paid". Was mega awkward.
