168 Hours per week . I cannot stop to laugh of that. I love the part Olympic medals and superhuman powers helpful but not necessary

madsadgirl said...

It's amazing to think that they get any job applicants at all.

But you know that it will be worth it in the end.

Of course, some don't win their Olympic medals until after they qualify. Dr Tim Brabants of Team GB at Beijing, and Dr Stephanie Cook Team GB in Sydney.

Heh, Robert Newberry of Australia has competed in the last three Olympics, has three bronzes, and is CURRENTLY studying medicine. My mind boggles.

And Scott Brennan of Australia (gold medal in rowing) is a doctor (starting intern year next year).

"Benefits: 10% "student discount" at local pizzeria" Oh, ain't it the truth.

Good post.

Dragonfly said...

And yet we still love it (most of the time). I only occasionally think of throwing it in and flying planes or driving ambulances:-)
And lets not discount the importance (hehe) of discounts. Particularity where pizza is concerned. I could procrastinate for Australia.......those medical Olympians have nothing on me :-)

Wow! Is this some topographical errors? 168 hours a week? Amazing if they could catch one applicant who would agree with the number of hours that he/she will work. That's too much requirement for an employee. The job is not healthy anymore and surely it will violate the Working Rules.

you are already a superman if you work 24/7.. Give time your self to sleep

Direct Mailing Posts said...

Working 24/7 is just killing your own self. But considering the said salary, it compensates the skills and experiences. Good post!

direct mailing lists said...

Starting at the said salary is a great start. It compensates one's skill and expertise. But talking about 24/7 would kill your self. We must give break to ourselves

Sales Training said...

We are not robots that have the capacity to work 24/7. God created the rest day so we must give value to it. Money is useless if we don't know how to handle it. Use money wisely because the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.

Very useful information. I love reading this blog post. I really appreciate the writings.

The salary is good but if you let yourself working 24/7 you will become workaholic and will cause damage physically someday.

I really think that 168 hours a week there must have been a typo or something. It probably meant a month. Not even an internship with ron receveur would take that long, I reckon.
