'How to Get Fired!' Excerpt
Former high-school English teacher and stand-up comedian Jeff Havens provided an entertaining excerpt from his satirical book "How to Get Fired!: The New Employee's Guide to Perpetual Unemployment." Havens, a lecturer and consultant, tells employees just entering the workforce exactly what to do to get fired from their jobs — in order to avoid doing just that.
This excerpt comes from the first section, entitled "Fake Your Resume." In this section, Havens describes the top ten reasons why people get fired. One of the ten behaviors that help people successfully gain unemployment is that they provide false information on their resumes, which Havens calls "one of the Four Pillars of Poverty." "Fake Your Resume" will "teach you how to manufacture a resume impressive enough to land a job to get fired from.'"
