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 in California writes:

Salary: Low Six Figures plus Great Bonus and Bene’s

Job: Manage cost, schedule and ensure quality on IT projects.

The Real Job: Set up meetings, sit on calls, say as little as possible.

Upside: Great Pay for basic clerical work.  Free Office Space, plenty of time to manage, explore outside interests

Downside: Have to share free office space with extremely incompetent people some of which have borderline personality disorder.

Darkside: reports directly to someone with borderline personality disorder

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