SUMMARY

What do being a Feng Shui advisor, executive headhunter, high-level marketing guru, vineyard wine pourer, wedding planner, Wal-Mart greeter and vice president of the United States have in common? They're all bullshit jobs. God must have loved them, because he made so many of them. The people lucky and skillful enough to have secured bullshit employment are everywhere, in virtually every field from ayurvedic healing to zoo management. The folks who work in these coveted bullshit positions enjoy the best lives imaginable - they are paid well, they work very little and their professions are highly respected, because nobody really knows what they do. What, for instance, are the actual functions performed by a McKinsey consultant? Other than sitting around making people nervous? None. That's what he does. And by next Tuesday, he'll probably be your boss's boss! What does an aromatherapist actually do? Sniff things? Yes! For big, fragrant bucks, that's what! When the Executive Vice President of New Media gives you his card, what is he offering? Who knows? Vaporware! For six figures plus a fat bonus, in reward for the quality and size of the digital bullshit he's capable of marketing. What is a clinical psychologist actually doing when he or she is nodding at a suffering depressive? Nodding, that's all. For $250 an hour! Now THAT is bullshit. And you can get into a big pile of it, too, thanks to Stanley Bing, who knows whereof he speaks and has based his entire career and several best-selling books on his own very special brand of bullshit.Bing, Stanley is the author of '100 Bullshit Jobs...and How to Get Them ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780060734800 and ISBN 0060734809.
