‘He was a right c***’: Cash Converters win at reference letters

Funny – but wholly inappropriate for a reference letter. Since the manager’s signature is visible, I’m sure s/he will be having words with directors, who may in turn give him/her a reference of their own…

Warning: explicit language (but also hilarity) below

A man who requested a reference from his former employer was so impressed with the resulting document that he framed it.

The ex-employee, identified only as Ryan, contacted the Ashmore branch of Cash Converters in Australia to ask for a reference – and the response was hilarious.

Addressed ‘to whom it may concern’, the reference describes with brutal honesty Ryan’s contribution to the pawnbroking franchise.

‘Ryan proved himself useless in a wide variety of tasks,’ the document reads.

5 Myths about Introverts and Extraverts at Work | LinkedIn

A really nice article about Intro and Extraverts. My favourite quote:

General Charles Krulak, the former commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, introduced himself to me as an introvert too. When Krulak took over as the CEO of a bank, he sat down with his vice presidents and said, “Everyone around this table has forgotten more about banking than I know. And because of that, I’m going to need and seek your advice. I may not always agree with you, and if I don’t, I’ll let you know why. If you get to a point where you don’t feel you can come to me, I’ve failed as a leader.”
