After 20+ years of unpaid internships, hourly wage jobs and full-time employment, I’ve seen a lot of different workplace situations.
In many cases, it can be difficult to share something with a colleague or client just what’s on your mind.
When you’re on the receiving end, the question “do you have a second?” from a supervisor is the workplace equivalent of a fencer barking “engarde!” - and similarly you instantly brace to get your ego poked.
It may be the nice one with coffee breath, the one from accounting who microwaves fish every week, or maybe a silent plea to the one who needs a strong deodorant.
In the spirit of Craigslist’s missed connections and PostSecret, I’ve set up this Tumblr to collect the concerns of the working world that are too difficult to share directly.
Looking forward to your responses.
