Last week during the U.S. presidential debate, KitchenAid got into hot water when one of its staff tweeted a rude, snarky comment from the corporate account, rather than using a personal one. You can read more about it from Gini Dietrich.
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened and it won’t be the last.
A friend of mine recently commented that he still doesn't get Twitter.
I understand how he feels because I was there…many of us were when we started. And from trial and error and all the hours spent, we start to see the value – or don't.
But the flood of negative responses surprised me because you could see they were from people who'd based their opinions on things they'd heard or read. Not from a personal experience with the site.
But one thing that never comes up is the flip side – how to leave a job. That is, how to leave it decently without slamming a door on your way out.
I’ve been thinking about this for a while and now that I don’t have any employees I figured this is as good a time as ever to share my POV.

I had a listen and think the podcast sounds pretty smooth. And I want to give a big thank you to our producer, Kristine Simpson for going above and beyond and putting it all together! Here are the show notes:
This week we start with a listener comment – a tweet, really – from @autumnthompson who asks what a new person like her can do to further her career. In past episodes, we covered advice for students looking for their first job, but we haven’t discussed how to move ahead in your career. So thanks Autumn. (more…)
