Fortune talks to Dwight Schrute

Dwight Schrute offers Fortune Magazine his typically sage advice on getting ahead in corporate America (Rainn Wilson makes a brief appearance at the end of the interview).

An excerpt:

I’m sure as a young person climbing the corporate ladder you’re a big Fortune reader …

Absolutely. I love their articles in Fortune that have to do with pirate ships that have sunk off of Barbados. Abandoned gold mines that still have a great deal of treasure in them in the Congo. And ruins in Peru … Oh wait a minute, that’s Fortune Hunter Magazine.

Thanks to GMMR for the tip!


  1. That is an awesome interview ^_^

    What made me laugh most was when he brought up the Dog Whisperer. My mom watches that show so i found this completely hilarious! She’ll get a kick out of it for sure.

  2. Ha-classic Dwight. I think cubicles could be a very interesting experiment,as long as they went back to the desks. And I have a feeling the supply closet will in fact make an appearence this season-at least I hope so!

  3. He’s right about the flourescent lights. I lost my soul three years ago, and I’ve only gained one extra week of vacation a year since. That barely makes up for it.

    The HVAC sucks in most offices too, for that matter.
