Recently a soon-to-be college graduate set up a networking meeting with me. I willingly agreed, not only because I enjoy helping people if I can, but also because I usually learn something as well. What surprised me was the lack of awareness this individual had about the realities of today’s professional world. Over the space of one short meal he made five CLMs. CLMs for those of you who don’t know stand for Career Limiting Moves or Career Limiting Mistakes. And the worst part is that he is smart, hard-working and would be an asset to most organizations, once some of the rough edges are cleaned up.
Admit it, plenty of you watch the Superbowl solely for the commercials and not for the football. If that’s true then you must have been disappointed last night because the football game was great for a change while most of the broadcast ads were boring at best and atrocious at worst.
