How to manage a college education | Penelope Trunk's Brazen Careerist

Penelope Trunk

While I do not doubt the power of a college degree for certain career paths, for me, spending a weekend with mega-investors, or internet marketers or whoever for less than the price of 1 college class can be indispensable. My father's foresightedness has made it possible for me to be price-neutral in the college decision. I can't say what the choice looks like for others looking to pay full price. Is this your first time here?

bad recruiter behavior: deceptive sales tactics

Ask A Manager

I was actually hired through a temp agency, which I had signed up for the usual reason – I needed some work while I looked for a full time job.

I took off from my temp job early that day (which means I lost pay) only to find that those three specific companies’ reps had “gone home.&# No great loss – I realized while they were giving me the factory tour that their strategy of using a temp agency to supply them with unskilled factory workers was not so much for production smoothing but was a way to hire illegal aliens with plausible deniability. how can I get my temp job to hire me on permanently?

my office is obsessed with weight

Ask A Manager

Since she left, I’ve noticed a ramping up in the office in general of long, loud diet conversations, and a general culture of striving to be thin. Well, I do think that in a national culture that’s obsessed with this topic, you can’t expect to never hear it come up at work. It’s an ingrained culture that the boss reinforces.

Ask A Manager

I know someone who I feel would make a great employee, is smart and would mesh well with the culture, but they would need additional education to be a generalist. But I’m skeptical this would be the outcome in the specific example you pose, since there are tons of experienced, talented HR people who are also smart and would presumably mesh well with your culture.
