Career Advancement

Filed under Current Events

Apparently, I’ve been going about trying to get promotions at work the wrong way. I’ve been concentrating on doing my job, and being good at it…. according to this article.. I should be pretending work is a popularity contest.

Research at Columbia University shows that jobs, pay raises and promotions are more apt to be awarded based on a worker’s charisma than on academic background or professional qualifications.

So.. I need to be liked apparently… so, I’m screwed.. Since I’ve been told I’m kinda an Asshole at work…

Oh Well… Guess I’ll have to be a ‘nice’ asshole so I can get promoted
