He’d Have to be VERY Hungry or VERY Broke

An acquaintance with a particularly low regard for how The Curmudgeon earns his living recently sent him a job listing for something he thought would represent a significant improvement. It says:

Are you interested in the opportunity to work for an industry-leading firm that services clients that include the Fortune 500, and will give you the experience and exposure you need to build your career and personal brand?

In light of his expressed disdain for associating individual people with brands or branding, The Curmudgeon would have to be VERY hungry or VERY broke or VERY unemployed even to consider working for such a company. He stubbornly insists that he’s a person, not a brand: Joe, or Joseph, if you must, and not Crisco, Hot Pockets, Kotex, OshKosh B’Gosh, or any others like them.

    I find myself wondering what kind of person holds your profession n such low regard.
