Workplace Advice a la ‘Ugly Betty’
Stransky has compiled career life lessons based on the Ugly Betty character as well as what-not-to-do advice from characters on NBC’s The Office.
Some tips :
• Discern friends from frenemies: “Finding colleagues who are like-minded and can be confidants is the first step toward building a network.”
• Be tech savvy: “Being the resident tech expert can give you access to top brass and privileged information.”
• Be wary of office romances: “TV shows featuring young professionals have proved that point with an exclamation point.”
