“How to Get Fired”

Speaker Jeff Havens comes to campus with career advice

Speaker, comedian, and author Jeff Havens will be coming to campus to present his lecture entitled “How to get Fired!”

Havens graduated as a Phi Beta Kappa from Vanderbilt University. He originally began his career as a high school English teacher, but soon followed his father into the world of stand-up comedy.

His love of teaching never diminished, so Havens began searching for a way to combine his passion for teaching and his sense of humor.  The results: two presentations called “How to get Fired!” and “Uncrapify your Life!”

In his lecture “How to get Fired!”, Havens discusses the Four Pillars of Poverty: fake your resume, establish your incompetence, destroy your work ethic, and alienate your coworkers.  According to jeffhavens.com, this is “the only lecture guaranteed to ensure that you never become a productive member of society.”

Havens has presented his humorous programs to hundreds of corporations and colleges across the United States and Canada; such places include Ford Motor Company, General Electric, and Purdue.

Sometime this year, Havens is scheduled to make his first appearance on Comedy Central. He will be performing original stand-up comedy.

This free 5-star event will be taking place on Jan. 28 from 7 to 8:30 p.m in Williams Auditorium. For more information, contact Entertainment Unlimited at EU@nullferris.edu. ν
