Re: Never had one, despite being fucking awesome.

Most places I've worked, the way to get promoted is to go out drinking with the Right People.

Most of the great opportunities in my life have come about because I went drinking with the Right People. Even if I didn't know they were at the time...

I forget the exact stat, but it's something like 2/3 of all jobs are never advertised. You pick these up with unrelated discussions in pubs.
