In late December days I met many people, mostly younger, and asked about their new year’s wishes and resolutions. A good deal of them said they would like to change their jobs, find some safer and better paid, but that this is very difficult thing to do today. I never understood people who say they can’t find a job. They would rather wait for someone to offer it to them than to make an effort themselves and find a job they know and want to do, and even at the company they would like to work with. Of course, if it’s not some public company where there are strict statutory procedures when and how someone is hired.
In all my working years – and I’ve been working at full capacity for more than four and a half decades (and I have not yet tired) – I independently solved the problems of my employers, or I worked on realizing my own ideas that I wanted to accomplish, but they were again dedicated to business and every other success of the employer who paid me to work for them (when I opened my own agency, I was left without a salary). You don’t solve your own problem by getting hired – you solve the problem of your employer. If you are unable to do that, then all the work is futile. I mean who out there is interested in somebody other’s existential problems, and the fact that they need to earn enough for a normal living or supporting a family? Social issues are dealt by the state, not by employers. They are interested in what you can do for them, and therefore for yourselves. I don’t understand what it means that someone today can’t find a job, is unemployed, but wants to work. Whatever you know to do, whatever you are educated to do, think of a ‘product’ that you can sell to a prospective employer, go talk with them, and sell it – sell them your story. Storytelling!!! If a potential employer understands that you will bring improvements and results to the job, you will immediately be recruited. But if you think that somebody will give you a salary to come to work, sit there for eight hours, and go home – forget it. Forget it, sit at home and enjoy your incompetence.
Through all these years, I was the one who determined where I would work, and under which conditions, but I guaranteed results, I transformed them into goals which I then accomplished.
It may look like this. The offer that follows is serious, real and lasting. I’m the publisher of the Media Marketing portal, which keeps track of events in the communication industry of the region and the world every day. Since you are reading this text, I guess you already work, or would like to work, in the communications industry. Perhaps you are looking for a better job and a higher payoff. I’m giving you a fair offer. If you know how to write articles about advertising and PR, about sponsorship in culture and art, or about women in the communications industry – welcome! You have ideas on how to improve the content of our portal or even want to be its editor, you will guarantee that your ideas will increase portal visibility and number of fans on Facebook and the number of followers on Twitter? You are ideal for us.
More visits and more clicks mean better offer to advertisers and sponsors, which means more money, and in turn it means you automatically get a good and increasingly better pay. If you have the talent and the will to sell ads on the portals, and to close sponsorship and event organization agreements, we need you like we need salt. You set the height of pay and all other terms of your work on your own, and give me just 24 hours to draw up what you need to do in a month to be paid the agreed amount. In that case, be sure that I will do my best to create the conditions for you and help you achieve your results and earn a great salary. I will make available to you all my contacts and experience that I’ve been building for 46 years. No, working with us is not a strictly office job (although, of course, we have offices); sources of information, advertisers and sponsors don’t sit in our offices. They sit in their offices. You set the working hours yourself and whether you want a permanent full-time job or a part-time one. No matter where you live and where you are going to work. Sarajevo, Zagreb, Belgrade, Kuršumlija or Mala Krsna. Doesn’t matter. What is important is that you are creative, ambitious, that you have a vision of your personal development and the vision of the work you are doing, and that you achieve the agreed results. OK?
