Sklover Working Wisdom

Do I have to take my job with the new company, or can I leave and collect unemployment benefits until I find a new job?

Ask A Manager

Let’s not encourage people to go to extremes to assimilate – let’s try and encourage them to embrace their uniqueness while settling into a new culture – I agreed with you until you made that point.

Penelope Trunk

I was not thrilled about going, but I try to be open-minded when it comes to stuff that is new to me that I am not ever wishing I will get a chance to experience. And, people who manage their careers well end up paying more attention to a company’s reputation for caring about people and community than what any given job description is.
