An Awesome Way a Designer Quit Their Job

Posted by: |


Even though we, as designers are known to be our client’s bitches, don’t treat us like shit because in the long run you need us. We make you look good.

Here was one designer’s last “Fuck you!” before he quit. He left this on his desktop for everyone to see.

A person that knew him said,

“He believed he was in a temp-to-hire position, and after three months of extra hours and butt-kissing, turns out it’s just a temp position. He was a good worker too. I’d have recommended him. Too bad he burned his bridges.”

Whoever you are who made this masterpiece, don’t worry you’ll find a job in no time, apparently you are creative and talented. I hope you added this piece of work to your portfolio.  =)

Recruiter Instructed Not to Hire World of Warcraft Player

Posted by: |

“He replied that employers specifically instruct him not to send them World of Warcraft players. He said there is a belief that WoW players cannot give 100% because their focus is elsewhere, their sleeping patterns are often not great, etc.”

This statement is coming from a forum post, so we aren’t sure how credible this statement is. But it does bring up a good point. It is true that hardcore WoW players, both PvE and PvP, love to look up statistics, strategies and news about WoW. Everytime I’m around a hardcore WoW player, that’s all I hear from them. I should know, I played non stop for three years but quit on February of this year.

Do think WoW is becoming that much of a distraction that employers are now using it to weed out bad employees?
