Non-essential corporate contributor. The Skurb occupies a negligible, dispensable position in a corporate office.

(see: v., to shirk) Generally, Skurbs avoid eye contact. Skurbs are usually 1 – 3 years out of college. A Skurb works in a cubicle, often shared with other Skurbs of equal or lesser stature.
