“Join our team now. X per hour and Y and Z package(s) available! Join our team!”
“Project X now looking for volunteers! No risk or obligation! Pay upon completion”
“Are you looking for a good paying job, with a family type of staff, and benefits? “
“Are you in need of a Loan with 0% interest?”
“Do you need a vehicle and have bad credit?”
“Are you or a loved one from the military back during X years? You may be entitled for compensation.”
What do these all have in common?
They all involve financial talk in one form or another.
Here’s the reality:
When a job/work offers you a position, follow the 45/75 rule. Otherwise, you’re taking too big of a gamble which will not end in your favor. Just because a job sounds good, without the right amount of due diligence, and without the proper research, doesn’t always mean you should take it.
Those commercials where “you’re entitled for compensation,” the fine print requires unrealistic expectations. The layers involved are the ones who get paid the most, while the rest might get something in return.
Credit scores are based on what you borrow and pay back as agreed. Again, there’s fine print to read on what your limits are and what companies are allowed to let you use.
If there’s a medical experiment who requires volunteers, verify the company first. If there’s an experiment, there better be a good reason why. Currently NASA has some experiment where staying in bed for 120 days nets $20,000 (actual days may vary). Purpose of the study is to measure bone properties and other vital signs.
This is part 1 of 2 for buzz words. I’ll leave with some quotes to help through the day:
