So yesterday I’ve received some PR story on the China industry site that basically back translated a hiring announcement of me joining the new gig. Plain and simple, work history, what I’ll be doing now. I replied to some comments that I thought was untrue and unfair to me, without trying to belittle the instigator. Here are some additional tidbits for the gossipers from China who might flock here.
Hiring announcement is an industry standard, they’re not made for self promotion for the individual nor the company, it is what it is. Not my idea, not my employer’s idea.
On accusation of me and two of my previous employers in China. The rule is, never discuss details about shops, as this is also industry practice. However, with those two agencies in question, if you’re a gossiper, you should know what happened after I’d left.
Here are some additional details about my newest employment.
1. I got reference checked, three times. Twice I had to provide in total, 4 contacts from agencies in United States, amongst them, world famous creatives. Then, approvals were processed from greater China, then Asia Pacific, and finally, New York Headquarter. My past bosses did receive questionares and called me to confirm. Some of them wanted to keep me in the states.
2. I didn’t ask for the title, and I didn’t take the job for the pay, I took it for a great boss I can learn from. I get opportunities based on my book, that’s always been the case ever since I started, and its pretty much true 90% of the time in this industry.
3. I was asked to come to China.
Lastly, to the instigator, focus on your work, commenting on an industry gossip site during work hour won’t give you any new ideas. Also it’s not going to make you any taller or thinner. Had I been the type of person you described, I wouldn’t have the opportunity to work at some of those shops in my resume. I told you before that assignment you did is crap when I was in Beijing, I still stand by that, if you want to challenge me you’re welcome to bring the work out and show that on a public forum. I ignored your personal attacks towards me in the company because I don’t think you’re worth my attention, but to instigate on a public forum is a different story. Finally I hope you can try to show up to work on damn time for a change, I’m betting that’s still not happening these days is it?
昨天，在中国的行业博客网站里出现了一些有关我的聘用消息，基本上是翻译了 Campaign Brief 中的公告信息。简单的叙述了我的工作经历，我现在公司的新角色。其中，我对一些不真实，对我不公平的回帖，在尽量尊重煽动者的情况下给了我的看法。以下是一些小细节，专门给国内爱说闲话的业内人看。
