How Dunkin Donuts And Others Ended Up Hiring A 'Psychotic' Credit Card Thief As Director Of CommunicationsBusiness Insider only got the story because a group of law students got a bunch of secret papers released. The criminal had a degree from Harvard, while the students who got the papers released are from Yale. Wonder how it would have gone if they were from the same school.
California Bob responds:
For every scheme that gets exposed, there are probably dozens remaining undiscovered or unreported. Point being, whether there was bias or not, this kind of thing goes on all the time. Heck, my own experience tells me that.P.S. I looked for a picture of Carolyn Kravetz, but could not find one, which I found just a little peculiar.
I did a quick inventory of my job history. 1/3 of my bosses have been psychos; 1/4 have been decent; and the remainder have been some combo of immature, incompetent, or flailing.
The more experience I gain, the more I realize that "career advice" is too general to be of any use. It all comes down to "being a good employee" for your particular boss. And depending on the boss, that could require attributes ranging from competency and reliability, to obsequiousness, to being a jerk, to the willingness to enthusiastically support any idea no matter how stupid or dangerous, to expertise, to the willingness to avert your eyes to felonious activity.
It is very dependent on the situation. That's why job-hunting is such a low-return activity -- there are 1,000's of jobs that require your SKILLS, but in those jobs you have to find the bosses who like you.
