Waiting for your SmartBrief on Workforce? Read a defense of my former life as a career advice columnist over at Punk Rock HR: “I don’t think you have to work in HR to be a good career adviser; I think you just need to have a keen, open-minded interest in what’s going on in the world of work. Accept the limits of your personal knowledge and experience and actively work to broaden it. Otherwise, you’re telling your daughter’s best friend that she absolutely must wear pantyhose and a skirt suit to her first day of work at Google.”
