This week on Forbes, I wrote about Why You Should Hire a Career Coach:
"For now, you just need to realize how special you are in a serious way without girly-blushingness about it. You’re a serious player who earned your chops in a serious field with other serious players and have found a way to make the transition from print to screen when thousands, tens of thousands of other journalists just bit the dust along with the publications that used to print their work.
And How to Be a Bitch at Work:
TIP #1: Don’t be available.

Don’t answer emails within five minutes. Don’t pick up the phone every time it rings. Don’t be available on weekends. Don’t work after hours. Don’t agree to work on vacation. Don’t turn your professional relationships into personal ones. Don’t help everyone who asks. Don’t put your work second to the needs of others. Don’t tell your coworkers all your secrets.
What career or life advice do you need? Email me HERE, and I may answer your question in an upcoming post. (Anonymously or by name -- whatever you like.)
