Career Lessons

- Cosmo Editor

  Don’t suck up to your boss and trample on your colleagues and subordinates. Chances are everyone will see through what you are doing.

  Take time off to travel once you’ve finished your tertiary education. There are many ways you can do this without having a trust fund.

  Work is independence and freedom. These do not become less important as you grow older, but more so. Abandon work ‘because he wants me to stay at home’ and you might regret it. But…

  …an ideal result for the next decade of your life is balance between your need for independence and stimulation, and your family’s need for you. Choose a career that gives you this flexibility.

  Women bosses are no worse than male bosses. You will find good ones and bad ones of each gender.
