On Monday, we had a staff meeting at the place we don’t about. During the staff meetings, our general manager reads out the nominees for employee of the month, then announces the winner. Although I didn’t win, someone nominated me. I’ve worked here for over three years and this is the second time I’ve been nominated. I’ve never won, but it’s still nice to know that someone noticed how hard I work!
I also received another accolade recently (wait, go back and re-read that with a slightly sarcastic tone). A couple of weeks ago, I got a letter from Jennifer A. Gonzales, Editor in Chief of Cambridge Who’s Who. The letter read:
Dear Thomas J Brown,
It is my pleasure to inform you that you are being considered for inclusion in the 2007/2008 Cambridge Who’s Who Among Executives and Professionals “Honors Edition” of the Registry.
The 2007/2008 edition of the Registry will include biographies of our country’s most accomplished professionals. Recognition of this kind is an honor shared by thousands of executives and professionals throughout America each year. Inclusion is considered by many as the single highest mark of achievement.
Upon final confirmation, you will be listed among thousands of accomplished professionals in the Cambridge Who’s Who Registry.
For accuracy and publication deadlines, please complete your application form and return it to us within five business days. For your convenience, an online form is also available at www.cambridgewhoswho.com/onlineapp. There is no cost to be included in the Registry.
On behalf of the Managing Director, we wish you continued success.
Jennifer A. Gonzales
Editor in Chief
Wow, the single highest mark of achievement? I’ve only recently started my business, so I must be doing something right!
The line about it being the highest mark of achievement sent giant red flags up, but what cemented it for me was, “There is no cost to be included in the Registry.” I read that to say, “There is a cost to be included in the Registry, and it’s huge.” Why would anyone include that line unless it weren’t true? For the same reason that guilty people are so obvious to spot: they’re overcompensating.
So it sounds like a scam, right? Well, two minutes worth of research confirmed it.
Looks like I’m 0 for 2. I guess I’ll just have to keep waiting for my recognition.0 People like this. Be the first!
