You know your occupation has made it, when it is the role of the main character in a current and sexy Hollywood movie.
Slightly glazed over, I thought I heard Mila Kunis say she was a head hunter. I sat up (slightly) and grabbed the remote and hit rewind. Did she say head hunter? Yes, it turns out that she did. A head hunter in New York City, no less.
That had my attention. She was introducing Justin Timberlake to a new opportunity. In english: she was pitching him on a changing jobs for something better.
Maybe I have been working in the wrong vertical all along…..none of the candidates I have worked with resembled Justin Timberlake. I am not saying that nuclear design engineers and project planners lack charisma but I’m not sure any of them would ever fit the criteria for “sexy”.
To be fair, I don’t much resemble Mila Kunis either. I’m quite a bit taller.
So I guess its true, the grass is always more sparkly in Hollywood. For now, I will just keep trucking along in non-sexy, non-glamorous but extremely satisfying role as head hunter to the non-celebrities.
Happy New Year!
