It’s a commonly held belief that when you’re at a job interview, you’re the only one in the room who is on trial.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. A good job interview should be a two-way street; the company gets to learn all about you, and you get to learn more about the company and the job being offered.
So you know that your boss drives you nuts….but you’re not sure exactly why.
It’s not that you outright dislike him. And he’s certainly not an unreasonable guy.
And even though you often find him difficult to work with, it’s not like you have a horrible boss story to share with the world.

Getting a promotion is a lot like training for a marathon.
Reaching for the top requires stretching and this is never truer than when it involves your chosen career. Mental fitness is as vital as physical fitness when building a noticeable profile.
Even though we’re told the economy is rebounding, you still know a few folks who are looking for work. And coming up empty.
Maybe you’re even one of them.
So when you see a growing number of articles and blog posts showing projections that indicate machines are expected to replace even more jobs in the future, you can’t help but worry a little.
Perhaps you were really, really angry.
Maybe frustration got the better of you. Or you might have been dealt some overly harsh criticism that took you completely by surprise.
Regardless of the reason, the damage was done.
If someone asked you for three words that sum up your reputation, what would you say?
How would other people describe your judgments, your knowledge, your behaviors in various situations?
