Point of View !
We all know what job descriptions are. Personally I know them blindfolded in about 4 languages.😭
The tasks (more or less) - The skills (very precise) - The qualities (more or less) - The offer (often very vague)
I was musing one evening: What if I were to put a lover or friend job ad? What would that look like?🤔
When it comes to the professional sphere (any and all of it) we're all forced to be pretty meticulous. In our private sphere, we can chill and be "less than". We can fail to reach many expectations because "hey, what's there to lose?"🤷🏼♀️
I've always found it rather ironic how easy it is to force compliance to a set of rules and expectations using money and power. When there isn't a master-slave context...it's easy come easy go. 🤞
But, let's cut to the chase since this is meant to be a more fun, tongue in cheek sort of post:

I do indeed wonder, how would Tinder/Bumble (et. al.) look if it were more like LinkedIn ?😎
More challenging I dare say! 😁
