Show me the road-map.

 
#1 Show me the road-map.

potemkin

For as long as I can remember, I have had a strong feeling that I am destined for great things in my life. My friends and especially my family have always told me that I’m destined for greatness – ultimately for high office.

I have embarked upon my business career and have reached a stage where I require your counsel. Regrettably, despite the calibre of people working in academia and in this industry, very few people actually recognise my calibre. I achieved BBA at A Level (Should have been AAA – my handwriting style in unique and aesthetically impressive, but was not appreciated by the cretins who marked my papers). I achieved a 2:1 from Exeter (should have been an Oxbridge 1st but once again an entity (the admissions folk) failed to pick up upon my innate brilliance). I have just completed the first 18 months of my career at IBM and am ready to shed my skin and launch myself into the top tier.

This is where you come in. I belong in Mck. They know it (deep down) and I feel it. I need you to provide the roadmap. How do I manage the transition? How do I convince them that my maverick genius is exactly what is missing in their organisation and to their clients.

I appreciate your help. Look at it as an investment. One day you’ll be begging me for work and (later) patronage.

Artiste to hehehe (#2)

Cover yourself in paper maché, and hang from a tree by you feet for a few days. Hopefully, you should eventually emerge from your cocoon as a beautiful butterfly. Things should then be easy.

Failing that, I’d download their application form and get practicing my interview technique.

Maybe there should be a group on facebook and the like for those destined for greatness.

Mars A Day to anon (#5)

I too am destined for greatness. Pamela not tonight babe, I'm too tired after last night. I am destined for greatness.

What's that annoying ringing sound? Surely it can't be time to wake up yet?!

Taxman to potemkin (#1)

You work on the customer support desk @ IBM, so i would initially look for a position in industry, preferably finance (Scotland) and work from there.

Seems a bit of a w@nkr, should work from home somewhere near the Falkland Islands.

No Taxman! You're wide of the mark. I do not work on the support desk, I *manage* it. Yes, I am a Manager. Already!

I have been involved in SLA and KPI development and have even lead a few small projects! Ha! Still doubt I'm heading for the top!

I have your IP address, and I am not that wide of the mark.

Mind you everyone knows where I work now :/
