Brazen Careerist

Useful and easily digestible advice for the 20-somethings who are entering the new world of work. Basic stuff like not using company email to break up with your significant other, delivering bad news or feedback face to face instead of via email, how to manage up, etc. Great wisdom around focusing on what your boss’s goals are, and aligning your priorities around them. Also good advice on having a neat workspace– a cluttered desk signifies incompetence. I found the sexual harassment section interesting– use it as leverage to get yourself into a better position instead of reporting to HR and getting entangled in legal battles & being blacklisted.
Trunk has a blog where she dispenses advice on a nearly daily basis.
