“Hey man! I heard you can go to office in your Bermudas and floaters and take your dog along if you’re working for Google, is that right?…”
“I heard Infosys makes even MBA’s do some C++ coding! But their campus is cool, huh…”
“What is it like to be working for 3M man? Heard it was once the hub of innovation…”
“I’m sick of my profile here; what is it like to be a Relationship manager for a multinational bank? Sounds damn exciting to me!…”
“Well, I know that company doesn’t pay well, but the babes, man! You got to see them!” 😉
“With a boss like mine, I don’t need to spend on haircut – each time I talk to him, I feel like pulling my hair out!”
I bet these are some of the random thoughts that would have crossed all your minds as you hide inside your cubicle, now and then taking a sneak peak at some cricket news, Dilbert and if you are lucky, Orkut and gtalk. 😀 (And if you are luckier still, well….. 😛 )
Nope, you are not alone. After all, Gen X’ers and job satisfaction have never co-existed and young folks like you, I and your neighbor’s daughter (whom you secretly eye 😛 ) are known to change jobs at the drop of an office pin. Salary, profile, brand names, work culture, boss rapport and sometimes even things like coffee vending machine and dress code have been the reasons for changing a job from one company to another.
Just imagine how easy life would be if you could make an informed decision before jumping into another company’s cubicle. Say, for whatever reasons, you are dissatisfied with your present job and would like to know if your chances are any better in another company, another profile or a totally different industry altogether – imagine getting all these answers at the click of a mouse…
