Job Application

…whatever you do… 
…fill only in what’s needed for the job!

“Job application”

Whatever you do, fill in only what they need to know. You certainly don’t want to appear like you know more than your boss.

They, the people, who say they plan to hire you, whoever they are. They who are going to evaluate your breath, your haircut, your speech… ,
…they cannot be trusted with secrets. So simply don’t tell em what they don’t need to know.

Listen,
Whatever you do, fill in only what they need to know. You certainly don’t want to appear like you know more than your boss. And on the other hand you don’t want to give them anything they could at a later time hold over your head.
What has helped me in the past was simply offering to work for three days for free, so they might be able to evaluate my abilities. If they decided to keep me they owed me three days, if they decided not to keep me, it wouldn’t have costed them a dime. Several times I landed jobs this way, and my sincerity and knowledge helped with staying employed.
