9 Career Stoppers for Women

9 Career Stoppers for Women

Barbara Reinhold, Monster Contributing Writer

Assume You’ll Be Rewarded for a Job Well Done

This is the quintessential female career error: Good girl syndrome. Doing a good job is only the beginning; letting the right people know about what you’ve done in a way they’ll respect is an art form unto itself. If you don’t know how to practice it, today is the time to start.

Gossip

Information is power in organizational life, and discovering or sharing scintillating information about others can make you feel powerful. But gossiping almost always undermines your perceived integrity and must be avoided at all costs.

Flirt with Men to Get Your Way

This is a strategy that also seems to come naturally, and the short-term gains can be heady. It always comes back to haunt you in the end, however. Get promoted on the quality of your ideas, hard work and ability to enable teams to work together. Leave your other moves to the hours outside of work.
