Flip-reading opens up new avenues
By Stephen Lacey
Imagine turning up at a dinner party and being able to tell the other guests that you have just got a position as a ‘‘chief donkey shaver’’. Or even an ‘‘international scooter ambassador’’. Not only will it break the ice, it will make you appear interesting, even if in fact you happen to be a tax assessor.
Your funky new job title is just one click away if you register online with My Career.
The Job Flip Generator is a tongue-in-cheek way of showing job seekers there are a lot more employment options out there than they might have realised. ‘‘It’s a chance to look outside the box,’’ says a Fairfax Media consumer marketing executive (and ‘‘district sultana consultant’’), Daniel Worthington. ‘‘And when you’ve finished having a bit of fun with the Job Flip Generator, you can enter your particular skill set on the site.
You may find you are matched to a job out there you were never expecting.’’ Not only that, you might win the monthly prize of $5000 just for entering. That will leave you with plenty of cash to have your new ‘‘central friction sustainer’’ business cards printed.
There is also a weekly prize for sharing your job flip with a friend through social media. The more friends you share with, the greater the chance of winning.
