If your answer is ‘yes’ for the questions below, we might have an opportunity for you.
Do you believe you are one-of-a-kind cut out to achieve things is life?
Do you believe that if you are in the company of like-minded people, you can build something from scratch and make the world a better place? Really?
Have you created multiple projects in your IDE that have no direct relevance to any of the tasks you are assigned to?
Are you the first person in the meeting-room to check what's wrong with the projector? And you work on the projector to figure out the problem even after a work around has been found after the meeting is over?
You are one of those people who would not call tech. support to fix a problem on your machine until you give up trying to fix it on your own? You go down on your knees, squeeze yourself under the desk playing the cables, dirtied your designer jeans and shirt, hurt yourself ramming your knee into the edge of the desk….and alas!....you have no complaints about the whole ruckus.
Are you the one who people around you are not certain of the nature of your job… coding? Testing? IT Support?
Are you the quintessential person to drive your boss nuts by dishing out an opinion on everything?
Are you the enlightened one who believes that all the VMs and frameworks should work the way you tell them to? a.k.a my highway or the highway?
Are you bonkers enough to volunteer to enter the promised land of long hours of mind-bending, arduous work, spending sleepless nights chasing Martin Luther Kings’s iconic words, sifting through endless text of data and romancing the workings of a start-up!
Likewise, you do not need to apply, if your answer is ‘yes’ to any of the following ….!
You are too high-strung about your job title or someone else's (gung ho Marketing Manager, behemoth Senior Developer, Frosty Project Leader, Nirvana Manager, etc...)
Your eye is on championing that next promotion. Your career plan is fixated on thoughts like ‘I should become a Manager’ or a ‘Vice President’ in the next 5yrs.
You strongly believe that your dignity arises out of your glistening shoes, your designer wear, your expensive watch and the stylishly embossed business card in your wallet.
You spend hours gloating over the performance rating your boss has handed out to you, since he/she knows zilch about the work you actually do.
You are knuckle-headed enough to measure your worth and career growth by the number of people reporting to your royal highness.
You waste eons thinking about how to keep your boss happy, no matter how thick-headed he/she is.
Your DNA has been doctored to believe that a process model like CMM has a deep connection to engineering.
The last technical literature that you bought (if at all, by god’s grace) was in college and that too with your dad's moolah.
You aced the art of copying code through google search and made it work without even an inkling of how that code actually works.
You keep inspecting that clock on the wall every day, hopelessly waiting for it to hit 6pm (closing time) because you are in a tearing hurry to get the hell out of the freaking office.
