Enter MediaJobsDaily’s Contest To Win A Free Copy Of Hacking Work

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you just ignored the standard office policies and played by your own rules at your job?  Did you ever think that by bypassing the “appropriate channels” you could actually increase your productivity at work?  If you haven’t considered this rebel behavior yet, don’t worry — Bill Jensen and Josh Klein have got you covered in their new book Hacking Work.

Jensen and Klein’s ideas on “breaking stupid rules for smart results” can be yours for free just by entering MJD’s Hacking Work contest.  You can participate by sharing your favorite workplace hack in the comments section of this MJD article or through Twitter (@MediaJobsDaily).  Entrants are encouraged to discuss their best time-saving tricks, computer shortcuts, and early weekend exit strategies to avoid the boss to name a few.

Act fast because you only have until tomorrow (Oct. 15) to enter.  There’s no need to enter your real name to participate as MJD understands that you would probably want to keep your personal information confidential from your boss.  The winner will be chosen randomly from all submissions and receive a free copy of Hacking Work after confirming their name and details with MJD.  Good luck and happy hacking!
