Are you reading Brazen Careerist, Penelope Trunk?

If you’re not you should be.


Well, for one reason, Brazen Careerist is good. Really good. All of it. Most everything Penelope Trunk writes. (She is part of 9rules, after all.)

I’m serious.

But today, especially, in this post: Make Life More Stable with More Frequent Job Changes. There is so much there, in terms of good content, I don’t really know where to begin.

Oh, wait. Yes, I do. This quote:

Staying in one job forever is today’s recipe for career suicide.

You sing it, sister.

Or maybe it was this one:

The best financial security today is to have great job hunting skills that never stop. Go to the best job, do it until you find another best job. This is the kind of person who will always be able to get money when they need it.

Sigh. Is it getting hot in here? I feel a bit faint.

I mean, this is the one of the best rants against the “two-page resume” generation I’ve read in quite some time. And you know that’s saying a lot, given how much I enjoy reading my own rants. Chuckling smugly to myself. And re-reading them, again.

If I’m making time for Penelope, you should be, too.
