Cat Videos Apparently That Big A Deal To Male Who Outsourced His Own Career

By Cornelius Nunev

Normally, when one hears about outsourcing, it means that a business is going to fire a bunch of people, hire brand new workers overseas for pennies and pay executives more. Reports of a man who outsourced his own career would usually seem outrageous but one guy really did it.

Actually outsourcing a career

Some, specifically those who labor in tedious offices trades, have likely joked about outsourcing their own job, though they don’t mean typical outsourcing. Typically, outsourcing is where a business fires a bunch of employees, hires a whole bunch of brand new employees overseas to do the same work and pays them next to nothing. Executives pocket the cash and talk about how innovative they are.

When people joke about outsourcing their own job, they mean paying an overseas worker next to nothing to do their jobs for them. One male has really done it, according to the BBC, and this is not a prank by “The Onion.”

The man’s identity is unknown, and he is referred to as “Bob,” but he outsourced his career. As a software developer, he compensated a Chinese company to do everything for pennies.

People want to see video clips of cats

Bob worked at a company as a software creator. The company noticed it was receiving a lot of stuff from China and decided to hire Verizon to assess the security in its network.

It was found that Bob hired a Chinese software consultancy firm to do the work. Before he was found, Bob was considered a model employee. He had really high quality work and always met his work deadlines. Bob made hundreds of thousands of dollars a year due to the good work.

During work hours, Bob was surfing the internet, looking at kitty video clips and buying things on EBay. Verizon found Chinese contractors logged in when he was at work. He used an RSA token, according to PC Magazine.

Business not happy over it

Bob reportedly outsourced his own career from several businesses. Though he was pulling down hundreds of thousands, it was costing him about $50,000 per year to cover the work, amounting to less than 20 percent of his yearly salary, according to the BBC. Granted, now he may need some loans to get by if he’s blown all his earnings on eBay goodies.

It was certainly anticipated that Bob got fired.
