Review: The book would either leave you motivated or confused, if you aren't paying much attention to what Stripes, the Tiger has to convey. The story is about a tiger who has been looking out for a better job. The author has been quite successful in depicting the corporate culture of interviews, candidate's mind, interview smile, and of course rejections. Stripes has been disappointed after most of his interviews, quite similar to everyone of us, who would have been rejected in all walks of ...more

The characters are developed and presented in such a simple and lucid manner that many of you may find yourself hidden in the character Anthony- The Stripes. The character seems to be very real and other characters like Misa, Hugo, colleagues of office and interviewers are presented brilliantly. Each one of the characters is lively and realistic in every sense.

Full review on my blog:

Stripes has one single long pending dream— to get a job that will push him beyond his limits; a job that is not only high paying but also challenging. He had been relentlessly trying for a job not just for one skill set but in different domains. Every interview only resulted in more disappointment and heartbreak thus bringing down his morale. Each organization and enterprise that interviewed him concluded him unfit for the job he was

Stripes has a dream... one simple dream, to get a job that challenges him and utilises his skills. Sadly, he's held back by the fact that he's a tiger in a human world.

Stripes Recruitment is a short and easy read, well worth your time. Through the simple fantasy of a tiger trying to find his dream job and build a career, Luke Melia addresses themes of identity, purpose and belonging in a fun and satisfying little story.

Also included at the end of the book is a short poem, 'A man stands on the

Stripes Recruitment is a short and easy read. In the story, the tiger is looking for a dream job in the human world. Mr Stripes is looking for a job change. Eventually, he ended up in starting his own business of a recruitment consultancy.

The entire story appeared to me as a metaphor. Stripes is a metaphor for employees struggling

Stripes Recruitment by Luke Melia is a short read. Anthony, a tiger is looking to make a mark in the human world. He has a job but is not satisfied with the job and wants do something that’s more interesting. He is not happy in his life mainly because of the dissatisfaction in his job. He is called Stripes by everyone because of his tiger stripes.
In a quest to find a better opportunity, he goes for every job interview possible. The only thing was that he gets rejected for all the job interviews.

It is seldom that one would think of a Tiger trying hard to fit in the human world, least appearing for job interviews. Stripes Recruitment is a short story by Luke Melia. Owing to the short length, it is extremely easy to complete this story within an hour or so. There are illustrations to add to the text. The Tiger works metaphorically for someone trying hard to fit inside the set rules of professional demeanor and getting rejected. All aspects of Stripes are similar to a human life, he has a ...more
