MOST RECENT LINGO
(1). A giant picnic table in the hallway with computer screens where about fifteen people get to enjoy listening to every, stinking word the guys on either side of him are saying all day long.
“So, this is the pod where your screen will be. Oh, and this is Joe, Mike, Kimmie, Sarah and George. One word of advice – I wouldn’t go talking to your doctor or girlfriend or anything here. George is a serial tweeter. Welcome aboard!”
(1). That little something that makes you marginally better than those guys in the hallway waiting to be interviewed after you.
(2). That little something that makes your firm marginally better than your competitors (each of which is probably being interviewed right after you).
“Well, I think our differentiating factor has to be our sharp suits. I mean, everyone basically does the same thing, right? We simply just look better doing it.”
CORPORATE LINGO DONE RIGHT, SORT OF...
After getting up at 5:30 in the morning, commuting for 90 minutes on two trains (while sitting next to that guy who decided to hit the breakfast burrito truck on the way to the station), is there anything worse than finding out that your boss scheduled a last-minute 8 a.m. conference call? Well, if you’re anything like us, it’s having to endure all that cheesy corporate lingo you’re going to be blasted with.
It makes you wonder: Do these guys even have a clue as to what all that corporate jargon means?
And, perhaps even more importantly: Didn’t these guys go to college?
