Alternative Careers in Education & Academia

Ms. Career Girl

There are certain expectations many of us have when it comes to careers in academia. The path is pitched to us as quite linear in fashion — earning a PhD, pushing for a tenure-track teaching position, and publishing papers to remain updated on the industry.

How to motivate someone who annoys you

Penelope Trunk

My older son has been entrenched in science curriculum ever since he was 12 and hired his own tutor. I told him we were unschooling and I don’t believe in standard curriculum. We argued. Then he said, “Mom you’re so good at finding people to hire, you should find me a biology tutor.”

my boss wants me to share my location with her constantly, interviewer asked if I was pregnant, and more

Ask A Manager

It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go…. My boss wants me to “share my location” with her constantly. I’ve decided to hunker down in my current toxic job for now. My boss is old enough to be my mother, which I mention because she likes to “mother” the younger people of our team. She sometimes refers to us as her kids. I travel quite a bit for work, sometimes with my boss and most times without. I’m the only person on my team that travels the most.

I’m in recovery and my office just moved above a bar

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I recently quit drinking and I am four months sober. It’s been going well for the most part, but my job has just relocated to an office space that is directly above a bar. Upon signing the lease papers, our very small office (less than 10 people) went down to the bar during work hours to “have a beer” to celebrate. I was extremely uncomfortable and a little bit triggered.

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I am a manager and I have a lot of empathy for people, particularly those on my team. However, that empathy has taken a turn since I’ve now had employees twice threaten suicide after serious feedback conversations. In both cases I was told they were considering suicide because of the potential job loss, and we had to act accordingly — welfare checks, making sure their safety was secured.

how big a deal is employee lateness?

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I manage an exempt employee who is frequently late: 15-20 minutes late at least once a week. He has a long commute that can be unpredictable when it comes to traffic, but after a year working here I don’t consider traffic a valid excuse. When I mentioned the lateness, he said in his defense that he stays late, which he does — but at the same time, he works slowly and cannot always finish his work within regular hours.
