Got a new attitude! December 8, 2010

I have come to the realization of why I have not landed a job in two years. Well there are the minor side issues credit score is so low I have my own number, I have been out of the industry for awhile because I can’t speak any Chinese dialect, They think that I am too old etc.

My realization is that I scare the hell out of them!!!!! Yes it is true I scare the hell out them. You ask why?

Why is because I have a high IQ and common sense which is a deadly combination. I have far superior leadership skills than they do. I can actual solve problems even outside my normal job.  I mean that if I was a hiring manager reading my resume and realized that I could outperform you in my sleep I would be quaking in my boots too.

So I have come to the realization that there are not any companies left in America with great leadership and common sense and intelligence that could use such a great talent as myself.

I mean here I am a guy who knows how to handle risk and to mitigate it so it doesn’t totally destroy us if it doesn’t work.  Risk now there is a term that needs to be Politically corrected so that we sugar coat to a point where it no longer sounds bad and frightening. Maybe then Corporate America will get their head out of their ass and move forward with some intelligence and common sense. But alas PC is the enemy of Common sense and intelligence. Alas there may be no hope for me to find a niche to work in.

But damn the ignorant masses I know who I am and what I am capable of. I know that I have great value to offer and what that value is worth. Trust me it is worth far more than the ROI the company will get that hires me. I have always out paced my loaded labor costs with the amount of profit realization that I have provided to companies.

However I find myself having to deal with inept HR Capital that have lost the ability to read into a resume the talent that is truly there. It has gone and replaced with the buzzword count to gauge the worthiness of a candidate. Gone are the days of embracing free thinking and innovative thought and being replaced with meek yes men and women who won’t rock the boat.

Yes alas there is no longer an atmosphere conducive for me to shine in. To make others look greater than they are. To make monies for a companies by attacking issues that others ignore or look over for lack of drive or initiative.

In finding a company where the CEO has not adopted the sports mentality of it is more about the money and the contract than the love of the game. I think it is time to renew my passport and see if I can find a country in Europe where my talents are appreciated as they are no longer appreciated here in America.

My new attitude is screw them they do not deserve me. Let them wallow in mediocrity. Let them continue to just get by until utter failure hits them in the face. They deserve it. My only regret is for the people it will effect because they do not deserve what they will get.

 

Here is a closing story my oldest son told me today. He works for the phone company. The detail officer told him that he just had to arrest a guy for beating on an HR person who told him that the company doesn’t hire the unemployed.

Now I am not sure that the HR person deserved it, It could of been a case of shooting the messenger but in a way they did because they are part of the problem not the solution. But the guy should have also the CEO and opened a can of whoop ass on him too. Maybe it would have been a wake up call. I mean think about it it would have shown that the guy was resourceful in finding him and takes  initiative by  kicking his ass. If I had a company I would hire that guy for those 2 reasons alone.

 

Let me know if you have a new attitude or what you think of the story.
