Trap for Prying Eyes

I’m pretty sure my employer is spying on me by reading my work email, because I’m highly valuable. I am thinking about writing a resignation letter, postdated a couple months from now, signing and scanning it, and emailing it to myself at my work address. I’m pretty sure the employer will see and read it. Should I? ANONYMOUS

This question made me giggle out loud, and Rob Walker took the words right of my mouth “Private sector employees should have no particular expectation of privacy for their work-related email accounts. That said, if you’re planning to part with your employer no matter what, this may work out to be a theatrically entertaining means to that end. It may also turn this employer into a much less enthusiastic reference later.”

The Conversation

Occupational hazard: I had always considered myself an empathetic person, but it has become harder for me to walk away from situations in which I think I could help. It’s great to let your passion drive you, but you need to find balance. I try to always remember: There’s a difference between listening to someone and really hearing them. I really try hard to hear. Sometimes it’s harder to do, but it’s more rewarding. The best advice I ever got: Be immune to criticism and responsive to feedback. It helped me break out of conformity. The worst :  “Don’t rock the boat” It kept me under the hypnosis of social conditioning for long time.

Make a Decision

Is there something you know now about being a working woman  that you did not know when you began your career? One thing I would say is the you’ll get so many opportunities. It is important to pick something and drive that path forward. I often say, “Make a decision and then make it the right decision.” I was fortunate to have a great pathway and receive a lot of exposure to various things. I was able to learn a lot whether it was at the Department Of Defense Clear Channel or working for myself in my twenties, but at the end of the day, I do think there’s a benefit to picking a lane. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted to the point that you’re sacrificing your valuable time. – Dia Simms
