Chief Executive Officer
TMC is a Top Multinational Corporation that by staying true to its ethos has experienced significant growth over the last few years. Due to the early retirement of the current CEO there is a fantastic opportunity for the right person to join one of the largest corporations in the world and play a vital role in the development of its operations.
The Chief Executive Officer will successfully conquer new and old markets and acquire more assets and businesses for the corporation. For this, you will travel abroad regularly leaving the business in the hands of your best employees. You will make clear that profits should go up while you are gone. On your return you will reward those employees who increased profits and you will get rid of those who did good but failed to improve profits.
The Chief Executive Officer will actively promote TMC' ethos and take from those who have nothing, even the little they have, and give to those who already have more than needed.
Any opposition you encounter while expanding TMC' wealth and power you will deal with appropriately.
You are already a very wealthy person. You have a proven track record of taking what you haven't put in and reaping where you have not sown. You have a well-developed killer instinct and the drive and ambition to lead TMC forward.
In line with TMC' ethos an excellent remuneration package is available for the right person.
To pursue your interest in this role please contact Mr. D'Evil by close of business on Judgment Day.
TMC pretends to be an equal opportunities employer
The above appointment is based upon two almost identical stories: 'The parable of the Talents' and 'The parable of the ten Minas'.i
The titles of these stories are, however, a bit misleading, as they are not parables but tell things just as they are. Some, in particular the clergy and their sheep, who wove the Son of God into their elaborate and contrived interpretation of the stories, might not agree with this.
- The parable of the talents, Matthew 25:14-30, The parable of the ten Minas, Luke 19:12-27, The Bible.
