I began my day full of motivation and good intent today. A long list of ‘to do’s’ to keep me very busy for at least an hour or two. Cleaning, waking up, folding clothes, writing tweets, waking up, making coffee, checking my Facebook, waking up, collect the mail, (real and E) laying on the sofa, more coffee, more waking up, washing, plant watering and lastly, applying for a couple of jobs.
It was this last task that got my demotivation working overtime. One post asked for a photograph to be supplied with my application. Well, just short of insulting the good name of my dead grandmother, this goes very close to being as low as one can go in my book. What an insult. Just proves my last post about employers only looking for young’uns with neat smiles, well shaped cheek bones, hips, firm breasts, gym induced flat stomachs and definitely no grey hair or wrinkles.
However, it is my duty to apply for vacancies. Why? Because my employment counsellor told me I had to. So I will. Photograph and all. So I went to work assiduously and without malice or contempt.
But now I need some help in deciding which photo would give a prospective employer the most accurate impression of me. Can you help? This is my shortlist of photos that show best my professional personality and aptitude.
1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8
I have carefully numbered each photo so you can advise me of your selection as the most suitable professional picture. You know, the one with that will help me get that all important first interview with a 20 year old blonde bimbo HR stick insect with a superiorty complex and a boyfriend from Milan.
I look forward to your selection.
By the way. I vote for number 5!
