Rule #37 - Resume the Position

When your boss is standing over your soldier watching you work, it is crucial that you remember before collapsing your windows that your resume is sittin' pretty as you please on your desktop. Stammering and stuttering when she mentions it won't ease the awkward situation whatsoever. Neither will dragging it into the trashcan.

Oops!!! I almost emailed my resume to a new job before I realized that my current job reads my email. It would have been bad! I'll remember this rule! Thanks!

hahaha! I love it that she mentioned it! That's fantastic in an awkward OMG kinda way... did you have it out because you are thinking of sending it around?.... what on earth did you say? I might have said that I pulled out my resume so a friend of mine could use it for her resume template, but I wanted to review it before sending it on..... (this is partially true, my boyfriend copies and pastes his resume onto my resume formatting every time I re-do my resume)

I am also in the process of job searching! My boss knows it though so he doesn't mind that I have been leaving for interviews. He actually is leaving for a new job, his last day is Monday. We have corporate in our office now interviewing new managers. I am just ready to get out of here!

DOH! Don't you hate it when your boss is looking over your shoulder while you work. My boss does it all the time and it absolutely drives me NUTS!!
