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 Oregon writes:

Marketing Communicaions Manager for a high tech company. It pays well, $80,000 and above. You don’t have to produce a single thing, just look busy behind closed doors. No one can figure out exactly what it is you do, but when you produce a quarterly report, they go “aaah!’ It’s a job for people with organizational skills and who don’t mind going nowhere in their careers.

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