FORTUNE -- Given the troubles in the eurozone, it's little wonder that the number of executives in Greece and Italy seeking jobs elsewhere in the world is rising. According to the Cyprus-based firm One Hour Translation, the volume of résumés it translated from Greece and Italy rose sharply last year -- by 29% and 54%, respectively. The majority of the job applicants wanted their résumés translated into English or German, presumably because that's where the high-paying jobs are. The question is, If these job aspirants have such lousy language skills that they need their résumés translated, how do they hope to get through an interview, let alone work in these other countries? --Charles P.

I flew in from the left coast last night and didn't get my normal three hours of shuteye on the plane. That's because in the cabin with me was one of those horrendous, narcissistic, noisy, infantile Chief Executive Officer types. She kept MOREBing - Mar 22, 2010 10:59 AM ET
