The apprentice is one of my favourite reality programmes (the British version of course). I find it really fascinating and I think it’s because the contestants are everything I’ll never be. I think it takes a certain kind of person to be mean and ruthless.
Of course there are many aspects to this rather lengthy job interview. The business ideas and brainstorming. The participants are to be admired for their resilience and general thick skin.
Of course when I’ve been in employment I’ve come across many different characters and you quickly differentiate between the one you can count on and the ones who have selfish motives.
Come to think of it being in an environment where people have their own selfish motives can be really tough. So glad to be having a break from that stressful dynamic. The only motive I’m concerned with is mine.
