Until someone figures how to hack their way to Free Living (and no, squatting at the parents does not count), we've all got bills to pay. And to pay bills, you need money. And to get money, you need a job. And a job means work... or does it? I've spent most of my educational and working career working hard to avoid work. Yet I've never been fired (well... except that one time), and I've managed to build a whole lot more bridges than I've burned. Not only that, I've made more money at each job than the last... and I've even been given raises.
What's my secret? Just the right of planning, persistence, psychology... and perhaps a dash of psychopathy. In this talk, you'll learn how to: look like you're a hard working, ambitious, model employee; work like a lazy, under-zealous sloth; create and deliver believable excuses; sneak hobby and playtime; fill all those long hours; befriend the boss's boss; master performance reviews; and jump ship before getting thrown overboard. Why climb the corporate ladder when you can just take the elevator?
