As I'm sure you don't need to be told, times are pretty tough right now for those seeking new jobs (or a job, period) on Wall Street. Some have taken the all out begging, stand on a street corner holding wearing a sandwich board approach. Others are going with the traditional route (networking, sending out resumes, hitting up any who's ever given them a business card). Neither are yielding much in the way of results. And while it might seem counterintuitive, for a person with zero prospects to initiate talks with a potential employer by straight up demanding a job and refusing to even interview for it, maybe it's something you ought to consider, in addition to taking various other pages from this chick's playabook.

Such as:

* Hitting people up when they least expect it, like when they're trolling the internet for ass. For example, don't stick your resume in some job forum but rather the Casual Encounters section of Craiglist.

* Letting people know from the get go you're completely serious about this and that you're not interested in being jerked around. You are a slut to be fucked (in exchange for a job), not to be fucked with.

* Making demands and arbitrary rules that you're in no position to be making, such as ""we will not proceed to anything until you find me a job." Kind of be an asshole. People will be confused, not know what to make of it and wonder if you know something they don't.

I'm telling you, it will work. Having said that, you must be able to back it all up with impressive credentials and/or an ass you could freeze ice on. Otherwise you're going to make some people very upset, such as this guy:

Basically, she's looking for a job, which is hilarious, because no one in their right mind would hire her. I made a fake email address, and she sent me her full resume, with ALL contact into, in her first reply... From there easily facebook-able, NOT cute.... And the resume is not impressive at all. Pretty standard, unimpressive GPA at a 3rd or 4th tier MBA, MS in Finance from an OK school, a summer at a decent research shop, otherwise nothing special to speak of. WHY she thinks she deserves a BB job is a mystery to me.
