He hardly interacted with his co-workers or participated in extracurricular activities. He met his targets but never attended office parties or addressed his juniors. Very few people knew about Tom. Even the bosses did not attempt speaking to him.
On the other hand, Jack was not as hardworking as Tom but always stayed in the limelight. He participated in seminars, conferences, and attended events. Jack was excellent in his communication skills and made a maximum profit of the same. He became famous in no time, and everyone knew him by his name. Although he did miss out on his targets often, he always found his way in the superior’s good books.
