Woodstock Refugee

I’ve taken some flak from some prim and proper people for the dorky, woodstock-refugee-like pic I’ve posted on my LinkedIn.com profile:

(In case you’re interested, that’s actually a pic of me on Bourbon Street down in Nawlins during Mardi Gras.) One of the comments that I’ve received on this totally “unprofessional” photo is:

Are you looking for companies who want to hire clowns?

LOL! Well, yeah, I am. If I do want, or have, to start looking for a new company to work for, I don’t want to draw attention from any big and stodgy institution whose HR department members think pictures are important. You see, I think those types of orgs are probably stuck in 1920’s FOSTMA mindsets and I’d rather not spend 40+ hours a week working for them. Of course, this tactic will drastically reduce the number of opportunities available to me, but so what. I’ll take my chances and change tactics if I absolutely have to.

    Given all the Bozo-lead org charts and pyramids you’ve blathered about and posted on in the past, Isn’t it actually the opposite?

    happy domesticated wood-fowl consumption event!

      Good point ACF. The challenge is calibrating my bozometer to minimize false readings. However, since the pics and posts will turn off a lot of HR recruiters from real bozo orgs, (I think) the dorky pic tactic supplements the meter.

      LOL! Hi Diane.

      BTW, what are you doin’ readin’ my tabloid trash? And who’s this “we” that you mention? 🙂
