How can envy be a positive catalyst for changing your career? Why is curiosity so vital? (Hint: it’s been said that “Learning is the new pension.”) These are among the topics, and emotions, covered in this episode that runs the gamut from getting hired to managing both your boss and your personal brand. Along the way, this episode delves into what kinds of emotions one might feel at every stage in one’s career. While fear is likely during the job search, and a mixture of happiness, pride and relief on starting the new job, it’s also not to let shame keep you from getting the credit you deserve for a job well done. As Pollak notes, yes, good job performance is vital to success. But so is burnishing your image and getting exposure. A job well done that isn’t noticed won’t advance your fortunes.
