How to Survivify: Working for a mean boss

Everyone has one in their life...sometimes you end up working for several. What you going to do...even the nicest boss has mean days.

Look on the bright side:

  • You will learn not what to do
  • You will have funny stories to tell...someday...after your scars have healed
  • Add one

Tips from the trenches:

  • Remember the job is not you...you are not the job
  • Take careful notes...never meet a mean boss without a note pad and pen...just taking notes can cool their jets
  • Ask the right questions...if they give you too many things to do say "I want to exceed your expectations on the most important priority...which one would you like me to focus on?"
  • Add one
