Enough with the tag lines and buzz words, yo. SO DONE!
Something about these twenty-teens seems to foster phrases such as the above. I’m just so done with “so done”. Also, if I see one more post promising a harrowing reveal that will “shake me to my core,” I’ma shake someone to their death. At this point, when a Facebook member shares a story to make my “heart melt,” my heart reverently wishes their face would melt à la Raiders of the Lost Ark.
This trend is prolifically apparent in the job hunting world. Job descriptions are always accompanied by buzz words, tag lines and catch phrases. EVERY prospective employee, no matter what position, MUST be a “multi-tasking expert” and MUST be able to handle “high-volume, fast-paced, work environments” yet remain “calm under pressure” at all times. An assistant to a zen community of Buddhist monks would need rapid-fire, trouble-shooting, problem-solving abilities in 2017.
An enthusiastic, creative, self-motivated, forward-thinking certified genius who thrives in fast-paced, stressful, “shake you to your core” environments. Do have over three years experience in this field while also holding an advanced, specific degree in same field? Then you already have a job!
