'Tis the season for job hunting! Yes, it's that time of the year where companies start seeing staff throwing in resignation letters and heading for better jobs.
With the much-anticipated year-end bonuses now sitting safely in their bank accounts, employees are on the prowl for opportunities to climb up the corporate ladder and relish in a new work environment.
But, how does one decide which job offer is the best? Yes, it can be tough deciding between one that offers its employees free carpark lots and another that gives out free beer.
So, in light of the festive season--and because the Twelve Days of Christmas tune has been ringing in my head--I came up with a list of 12 signs or indicators that you've got a dream job on your hands.
Every employee gets 1 company car.
On your first day, there are 2 welcome gift baskets filled with tins of caviar and bottled champagne, sitting on your desk...one for you and the other for your spouse. A smaller basket rests on the floor, stuffed with treats and toys for your dog--yes, you are encouraged to bring your pet to work.
It's a 3-day work week.
Employees enjoy 4 paid vacations a year--one for every quarter.
No work-related discussions are permitted after 5 every evening.
Monthly salaries are revised upwards every 6 months.
Everyone gets 7 free pints of Häagen-Dazs ice-cream every week--one for each day of the week, including the four days they aren't at work... It's a three-day week, remember?
You get to call in sick 8 weeks a year, especially for those days when you'd rather be suntanning on a beach.
There are 9 bottles of beer waiting for you every evening, at the bar located in your office building.
All new entrants receive 10 lots of stock options.
There are 11 types of vending machines in the pantry.
Employees get 12 months' worth of bonuses, every year...woohoo!
Happy holidays, to one and all!
