If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. I’m completely out.
I’m trying to re-enter my career after six years out of it largely looking after family. I have numerous degrees, and am specialized in corporate controllership. I also used to be involved in politics – fairly right-wing, the sort of thing that libtards and HR departments don’t like. Until, frankly, joining this site, I was awful at ghosting, and a number of previous employers do not like me. I’ve sued and been sued by two employers thus far. I do not play well with others, but am capable of faking it at this point to a reasonable extent.
What I have to offer a firm is remarkable – just remarkable – technical competence in accounting and operations, combined with an almost psychotic work ethic. My last two companies I worked at an average of 50-55 hours every week for several years. I am more than happy to do that again. I have no hobbies, and don’t want any. I want no family, or girlfriends. My goals at this point are entirely professional.
I’m not just *saying* that, like so many blue pill cucks. I literally have no goals in my life that aren’t professional. I take care of my body and diet so as to be more capable of doing the mental things that I live for. I’ve started bodyweight exercises so as to live longer and to keep my mind fresh while I do so. I would like to get in shape – quite remarkable shape – because it assists in business.
My only joys – since I was very, very young – have been in professional and academic merit and status. It is quite literally all I live for or want in my life. I have worked for two start-ups that had great economic potential, neither of which went anywhere. I think what best sums up my quite obsessive sense of professional pride is this little story:
I was asked at one firm how to hire people who would do anything for the job, who would be willing to sacrifice their entire lives for remuneration. How do you prove this? Anyone can *say* it. How do you prove it? I suggested that potential employees should have to go down to the local kill animal shelter and kill ten dogs (who were going to be put down anyway) in a row. Anyone who could do that would get the job. My boss laughed.
I wasn’t kidding. I’m still not. I would never – ever – want to hire someone who wasn’t hungry and obsessive enough that they wouldn’t quite literally kill for the job. I’ve hired a number of people over the years. They’ve all been quite psychotically loyal, quite obsessive, and fanatically good employees. The key word, of course, being fanatic. I’ve always paid people about half again what the ‘job was supposed to be worth’, and they’ve always produced 2-3x what a normal employee would.
How the f~~~ do I market myself?
How do I even find a company that wants this? I get lots of first and even second round interviews with little blue pill f~~~ fests that basically just want someone who plays nice-nice. Needless to say, even ghosting quite well (I do give good meeting), I don’t get offers. Too much of my past where I was a wee bit too obvious about what I actually believe is out there, and there’s no good way of escaping it. I have interviews, I ghost, I make it through two or three rounds, but don’t get the hire offer.
Any thoughts? I’d appreciate some out-of-the-box thinking.
I’d be a perfect fit for the Umbrella Corporation, if you get that reference. That’s my dream job. A place like that that cares for nothing, literally nothing, other than high paycheck, professional status, rank, merit, accolades. Co-workers have repeatedly accused me of being willing to sell my soul for professional success. Back before I ghosted, I would cheerfully smile and say “why yes, absolutely. It’s better than selling it for a wife and kids who don’t love you”.
I know better now. Now I don’t say things like that. But twenty-odd years of being quite openly mercenary and psychotically hard-working have taken their professional toll, and I don’t know how to either use this or back away from it.

I do not play well with others,
I once included in my resume that I am not a team player. I prefer to work alone and am responsible ONLY for my own labour.

I do. Grinning.
willing to sell my soul
Never sell your soul. You keep it by doing right by you. Good luck in your endeavors. I hope others in your field will chime in with some advice that is more relevant.2017-03-09 at 12:07 PM#432835+1
As an attorney with the Government I used to be included on interview panels so I have a lot of experience with this issue. (Especially since I also advanced ONLY by going through interviews as well)
My advice: Lie.2017-03-09 at 12:14 PM#432845+1
Listen to the attorney, lie. This would at least give you equality with women

My advice: Lie.
F~~~ Pete! That is painful to read. I can’t do that. That is siding with the enemy. I posted in Stealthy’s thread about ghosting. My honesty usually gets me nowhere though. People do not want the truth. They want lies that comfort them.
Glad I’m not in the business of comforting.
No disrespect Pete. You are one of our greats.2017-03-09 at 12:32 PM#432872
Okay think about where Pete is coming from. He thinks a lot the way a lot of us think. Suppose the year is 1933.
You can do whatever you want Society is open but you are going to be recording the history of your life and the CIA is definitely going to help you. How would you want to speak of yourself in today’s terms? of Vault 7 you no longer have to blame the Russians

I retract the dog statement. That was a little much. I like dogs, and don’t believe any shelter should be anything but no-kill. Apologies for my slightly over the top rant. I went through my notes, and it wasn’t dogs – I had originally suggested killing illegal aliens to get the job. Something about staking them between high and low tide, waiting for the ocean to kill them, and bringing an eye back as proof of deeds done for employment purposes. Some combination of Edgar Allen Poe and Philip K. Dick.
Again, my sincerest apologies. I would never hurt an innocent animal; I am only really comfortable with the idea of hurting people.
I’m possibly kidding. Let’s go with that.
Never sell your soul. You keep it by doing right by you.
I’m trying to walk that very narrow path of doing the right thing while at the same time doing the practical thing. I grew up with a somewhat psychotic work ethic due to not everyone around me having one. Work made you safe; work was cleansing; work was good. I am happiest when I am accomplishing things and working my ass off. To be denied of the ability to work, to contribute, particularly given the f~~~tards, wymen, and blue pill socialist parasites who fill the ranks of the employed if not working . . . some days it’s just too much. I am enraged by the useless f~~~s who have work when work is all I want.
My advice: Lie.
Oh, goodness, my interviews are a brilliant work of fiction. The accomplishment part is the easy thing, and is sadly pretty much all true. The interpersonal stuff is where it gets fuzzy. Having been party to a lawsuit or two . . . one has to sort of backpedal and dance.
No, I’m totally comfortable lying through my teeth to get a job. The problem is that my references (ha, ha) aren’t all, say, dead by being touched by two women in an Asian airport. Or something. Although I suppose having all my references murdered by North Koreans would also be a bit odd.
Listen more then you talk.
See the post on ghosting.
Always keep your opinions unknown.
Focus on the gold…not the social winning if what?
You could always start your own Nazis party. Ha
Consider switching industries.
Your posts on ghosting are (mostly) all bookmarked, and I review them often. I’ve done much better in my personal and de minimus social life since reading what you’ve written, and I thank you for that. The problem is getting a job to use more of these techniques, and surviving interviews and (I suppose) the checking of my references to get an actual job. I don’t know how to really switch industries. My specialty is controllership focussed on industrial or manufacturing. It’s specialized enough that it would not, at all, be easy to make the leap into anything else. It also offers the greatest opportunity for advancement and money. Start-ups either pay well or not at all, but I enjoy the atmosphere and the ability to actually do actual things.
Thank you all for your thoughts and time – I appreciate not being alone, and having a band of brothers.
