Crazy isn’t it ? I can’t get my head as to why so many people would want to work there.

    […] if they are stupid enough to think that I, as a blogger can help them get jobs at SuperValu or a job at IKEA then they don’t diserve a reply. Sometimes people try to paste their CVs in reply to blog […]
