Occasionally, I hear of people who create their own position in a company, which — let’s face it — sounds pretty cool.
I mean, to be someone who’s doing such a bang-up job creating new opportunities and processes that someone else recognizes it and makes a whole new job title? Boy, does that sound fun or what?!
A clean slate. A fresh canvas. Who knows what greatness awaits?
Call me a pessimist, but I bet most of those kinds of jobs end up like this cartoon in short order.
