Is your job any different?
I’ve humbly experienced different media organizations.
Some of those experiences taught me to
do work—to accomplish a task on a day-to-day basis for someone who needs the work done right now or for an upcoming meeting.
not be myself—work under an awkward atmosphere, dress and speak like everyone else.
win at office politics—let’s ignore people, let’s not do the work, let’s not train them, let’s play gaslight games on them, and let’s confide in other coworkers about the person who stressed us out earlier.
work in fear—budget cuts…will i be fired today or tomorrow? did i screw up somehow and will I fired?
not hope for career advancement—usually ties into seniority rather than intellect and efficiency.
What does your Career, Job, or Profession teach you?
