These stories are all true. The identities are generally hidden to protect people's privacy.

If you are entering the job market for the first time, these stories are for you. If you want to get some idea of what it's really like out there, these stories should give you a humorous but factual and in-depth look at some of the problems you might face. Lots of books can tell you how to dress, how to try to make a favorable impression, and so on. These stories tell you what it's actually like "in the trenches". Some jobs are 'menial' and you probably wouldn't ever want to do them. Most pay pretty poorly. Some are dangerous. Most are boring. But sooner or later, nearly everyone goes through a time in thier life when they will take any job. Most of us actually start out that way. These stories talk about what those jobs are like, so you can figure out what you really want to be if you do get to grow up and get a real job.

Highlighted entries are currently online. The rest I'm writing as I get time.

If you enjoy these stories, if they help you in some way, or if they touch a nerve or something, please send us email! We want to hear from you! And please tell your friends to come read them as well! Thanks!
