I may not read Dr. Phil’s latest book, Life Code, but there’s a worth-repeating story about job-hunting and confidentiality:
A woman extols a potential job opportunity that pays $25K more than her current company. Then feels betrayed by a co-worker who, upon learning this, applies for and gets that job.
Seems like a simple lesson, one that we should have learned by, oh, say, junior high or maybe high school? You remember … you tell Susie that Phil is dreamy and that Sherry isn’t treating him right and … Susie and Phil are going out on Friday night.
Keep it to yourself if you don’t want it to get around. It’s still doable, even in this age of exploding media.
