“Ask a Manager” Answers Your Career Questions


Do women have to wear makeup to look professional?

How soon can you tell if a job isn’t right for you?

How do you avoid working for a bad boss?

I’m so glad I finally came across Alison Green’s Ask a Manager site. She gives succinct, meaningful advice for topics ranging from all of the above to much more, including how to ask for post-interview feedback without being a jerk. And yes, the often hard-hitting, never gratuitous humor appealed to me very much. I’m hooked!

Readers add their take, too, rounding out your experience with theirs, or at least providing different facets to the same issue. I guarantee you’ll find something worthwhile if you take the time to look.

As Alison herself says:

“I believe in being brutally honest with yourself — about what matters to you and how much, about what you can and can’t change, about how you’re going to respond to the things that you can’t or won’t change, and about reality in general. This is the recipe for a happy career and a happy life.”

Don’t wait a second longer–Ask a Manager now! Warning: This site is highly addictive.
