It's been a while since I had to look for a real job. (I understand it's either done by computer and/or magical sorting hat now.) But years back when I last perused the paper looking for employment, one of my favorite phrases to see was “on the job training.”
You see, I have exactly two marketable skills: I can play the trombone and I can draw funny pictures. So I needed a workplace that was willing to show me the ropes.
Thankfully I'm no longer looking for more standard employment (drawing funny pictures seems to be working out), but that beloved phrase inspired this cartoon.
