The ‘Red Pill’ and ‘Game’ of workplaces and careers


Any of you out there job-hunting?

Of course you are. If not, chances are, you will be in the future.

ElectricAngel brought my attention to this woman and her writings. (Just so you’re aware: You may not be able to see links to all of her posts – up to 174 as of this writing – on one single screen unless you have a membership there and are logged in, and in fact, I’m not sure if you can see them with just a free membership or if you need a premium one – right now, I’m doing the one month free trial of the premium membership.

        What I mean is that the School of Speech isn’t necessarily the most business-competent school. Its specialty (and the J-school) was and is preparing students for the politics of mass media – call it Cathedral Studies written by the Cathedral – along with the core subject material available to all students in the USA.

Liz didn’t enter mass media, but instead entered corporate America via HR. That signals another career route not generally available to NU communications grads – that’s how their engineers and MBA’s advance into power – those that aren’t entrepreneurial.

        Another clue regarding her approach is her associates:

        Way too new age for my tastes, speaking as an engineering consultant who concentrates on referral work and repeat clients in an adoptive city. If I were to compare to others, I’d say she’s more Sarkeesian and less Drucker.
