Inner circles - have you tried applying for one?

Colorful noises, silent downpours, do you know to speak activities, cold coffee, long hours of dreaming -is that the corporate world you know of? Vibrant voices, sounds of laughter, group gatherings, steaming hot cups of coffee, charged up hours of ideation - does this sound more like the place you are in.. Maybe or maybe not. In all of this what may not be different are the inner circles.

What's that now? Some sort of process that is required for a job or is it the halo that you may get once you become the SME. Neither friends yet it is much more valued than the appraisals and the money. Inner circle allows you more face time with the most key clients, gets you the invite to those dinner parties and the oh so not formal, very friendly get to gathers, gives you the so called juicy information which can make you the most sought after person. Oh yes, it comes free with an invisible chip on the shoulder- did you expect more?

Gaining an entry to it does not require great degrees like hard work , smart work, any work for that matter. It s quite simple like fancy designations (we have always believed in hierarchy you see) , some amount of put up arrogance , even if you are down the ladder you can be accepted there as you come in with the exception of having THE ATTITUDE.

Don't even fret about the skills, it's easy, if you know how to take here and there, be forgetful, have less ownership by seeming busy all the time, knowing how to show people thier places, buy and apply some butter or pure dumb ignorance, you land in that spot even without interviews.

I knew some one who was trying hard to get there, not that I have not tried and shamelessly never got there just had one cent - the outer circle is large and has a larger warmth, you may never feel alone as you will see some one at every step unlike the inner circle.
