A few words with winning author Bruce Miles:

Bruce Miles

Has your sense of humor ever helped you on the job? Any examples? This is cheating a bit for this purpose, but humor is a big part of my job. I’m frequently asked to be a funny character or to find the humor in a piece of copy.

Ever used humor in a job search? Yes, when I audition to do voice work I often try to put an unexpected humorous twist in my read or acknowledge in some way, such as a verbal wink, the humor that the writer has put into the copy.

What’s your best advice for jobseekers?  Don’t apply just for jobs that are open. Apply to companies you’d really like to work for even if they don’t have openings. Many times I’ve seen and heard of a fresh resume and a yet unpublished job opening arriving at a decision maker’s desk simultaneously. Magic does happen.

What do you find funny and not funny about job search? Funny and sad at the same time are employers who don’t really know what they’re looking for in an employee, which can bring about funny and sad questions and decisions on their part. It makes our guessing game of “what do they want?” all the harder. It keeps you agile.
