A pal requested me to assist his daughter write a proper follow-up letter to a potential employer.

After a couple of questions, it has develop into clear that the younger girl has probability to land a job in an atmosphere that can make her life depressing, the place she’s going to by no means be productive or no less than happy with the outcomes of her work.

Though we’re speaking concerning the data financial system, Trade 4.0, and so on. – I (want I) might wager any cash {that a} hundred years from now, in the present day’s work atmosphere will probably be known as mental slavery.

That is the important thing purpose why as much as 80 p.c of the worldwide workforce carry out effectively beneath their capability: slaves are by no means productive.

Nor are they pleased. Until, after all, they’ve reached the ultimate stage of slavery – and now not understand that they’re slaves. Worst of all, they don’t simply comply with develop into slaves; hundreds of thousands of people are stubbornly and sincerely striving for it.

Now you don’t have to promote your self to the one that owns “capital property” as a result of the principle, if not the one, asset that creates worth is you, the data employee – your data, expertise and expertise. No person can take your property away from you.

If your worth, you’re within the place to “rent” your employer. Don’t allow them to spoil your skilled and private life.
