It's 9:34 a.m., do you know where your career is headed? Most likely, you'd never call what you do from 9 to 5 a career. You'd call it your day job. What if you were given a single day to record it all: the important questions about life and career, your most private thoughts -- from company policy to disgruntled co-workers (5 yrs. on the job; breakdown judged to be forthcoming) -- what would you say?

Customer service rep., Mark Thornton, answers this question with Day Job, a darkly comic, high-velocity chronicle of the modern workplace in the unique format of a fictional journal littered with ironic quotes and quirky illustrations.
