I Worked for a Guy Like Mike Pence. It Was … As Expected.
People should stop saying “Any publicity is good publicity.” In 1910, William Jennings Bryan used the famous whistle-stop train to campaign for a proposed Constitutional amendment against special interests. That is: to spread a message, he literally spoke out of the back of a train, after which more coal was shoveled into the firebox and they hurried on to the…
In last week’s column, Personality Qualities Way More Important Than Anything on Your Resume, I noted that “An impressive resume is the new high school diploma.” A resume is a formality, it’s background information and you’re in the foreground — if you’re looking for work, you should depend about 20% on your resume and 80% on your skill in pitching…
I have spent the last couple weeks working on a new profession I had not even been previously aware existed: textbook punch-up. Have a dry, academic-sounding textbook? Call a comedian who majored in philosophy! Now your textbook is full of logic jokes! This has prompted me to think: while I think my resume looks pretty good, no one gives a…
I have a love/hate relationship with certain “motivational” literature. On the one hand, there are some good ideas, one of which I’m about to recount. On the other hand, the idea that your happiness is entirely dependent on your mental state can keep you from taking action to actually make changes, and in many cases is a way for employers…
Business is a lot like dating. Like cold-hearted, competitive dating among people who don’t love each other. In other words, like awful, awful dating. Once upon a time, when I was considering moving to New York, I looked for jobs. A Director of Marketing position was available at a company I’ll call QuixoticIdea.Com. I was an unconventional candidate — I’d…
I once put up an ad on Craigslist for a personal assistant. I’m not very good at managing people, and I know that, so I wouldn’t want to mislead anyone. The ad basically said, “I’m a big idiot with lots of stuff going on. Here are fifty things I need to do (send press releases, make hardboiled eggs, wait in…
How wealthy you are doesn’t have all that much to do with what’s in your bank account. It also has to do with where you’re reading this from right now, and whether it’s possible for you to get “in trouble” for reading TheGloss during “work hours.” It has a lot to do with how much of your time you have…
Aging has many benefits, even for women. At least the first decade or two of it – which, if you’re in your twenties, are what’s next on the agenda. I was 21 when I set up my first real office for the company I had started when I was 19. Being young, I was obsessed with appearing “legitimate.” I wore black…
Women are often judged by their weight, and indeed, it can be difficult to achieve the whippet-thin, rib-baring appearance desired by society (or at least for social dominance over other women). But men are judged by their height, and there’s nothing they can do about that. There’s no Celebrity Height Club. Even with all the money in the world, Tom…
If you find yourself in your late twenties, living with roommates and without health insurance, you may rightfully wonder how on earth it could ever be possible to have a baby before your eggs get old. From a former head of research of a pharmaceutical company, as quoted in a scare-tactic-filled article on The Daily Mail: Today, we know that…
