Don’t, don’t what?

By on April 4, 2016

My work — responsibilities, job title, salary, benefits, compensation, long-term rewards, security, and achievements — is a core part of my life, purpose, and identity.

I have heard, “Oh, it’s business. Life is not fair, don’t take it personally”.

Don’t, don’t what?

Of course, I will take it personally!

No employer should joke with these and no employee should be scared of clarifying these in the fine print before taking a job.
