If you get fired, I’m not sure that broadcasting to the world that you’ll sell yourself out for a $3 sandwich is the best way to start getting leads for your next job. But what do I know?
Burger King is running a new promotion where you can get a FREE Whopper if you get FIRED. But . . . to prove you got fired, you have to go onto LinkedIn and post a public message saying, “I got fired. I want a free Whopper. #whopperseverance.”
The first 2,500 people who do that will get a gift card sent to them for a free Whopper. And considering how your professional contacts will probably view that posting, hopefully BK will throw in a job application too.
