50 Bulls**t Jobs: Freelance Graphic Designer

April 26, 2007, 8:51 PM UTC

Just a few ways to be profitably and pleasantly (if uselessly) employed, from Stanley Bing’s book, “100 Bulls**t Jobs and How to Get Them” (Harper Collins).

A reader from New York writes:

Yeah, I have talent and skills to use the programs, but I basically suck the money off companies by making their pretty pictures. The marketing and events departments love us and invite us to the best events, and we meet an occasional star here and there. Downside is the occasional x-acto knife cut and talking to the computer monitor all day. It’s all fun and games when you’re young but once older you have to stop making pretty pictures and manage people and projects.

Readers, what do you think? Is this a bulls**t job?
