Last year, I shared my slightly crazy, definitely non-linear career path. If you’ve read the entire article, you’ll know that I’ve worked at a few very different companies in the past five years. From a conservative legal office to a fashion-forward retailer, each of them came with their own pros and cons and of course, their own dress codes. Every time I started a new job, I had to get a sense of the accepted office attire and adapted my wardrobe accordingly. So that got me thinking — does your office have a dress code (either spoken or unspoken)? I’ll share three of the work environments that I’ve worked in and what I wore for each

It’s no secret that I love my job. I started managing internal communications for a company that I love back in January and there are days that I still can’t believe this is what I get to do. I’ve also shared my very non-linear career path with you, but I thought I’d focus on more of the how I got to my latest adventure. As in — how long did it take me to find this job? And when is the best time to look?

You might have noticed that’s it been a little quiet around here these days. I’m trying to create more thoughtful content on the blog, but also my day job has been taking up a lot of my focus and energy. Many of you know that I work for an airline. Well we’ve just come out of four different hurricanes all back-to-back-to-back. During this time, it’s all hands on deck and everyone works around the clock through late nights and weekends, to get the operation back up a running and take care of everyone who has been devastated by the storms. Stressed has been my baseline for the past month, so I figured I’d tackle it here on the blog and share my tips on how to not let it get the best of you.
