What are the hottest career news story of the week – or at least, the ones that mean the most to your career? If you’re drowning in headlines and don’t have time to click every one, tune into PayScale’s new weekly career news show, Workplace Wonk, starring PayScale’s Managing Editor, Aubrey Bach. As the Workplace Wonk, she’ll tell you which stories got the most attention from recent readers, plus offer insight into how they can affect you and your job.
In this week’s roundup, Aubrey looks at which jobs are the hardest to keep (hint: your mother was right about not becoming an actor); which jobs are the best for folks who love to travel; and which jobs are the best for you, personally, whether you’re an introvert or a working parent or a college student just starting out.
Finally, this episode wraps up by helping you tell if your boss is as bad as you think – or fear. Bottom line: 65 percent of managers are “checked out” at work, which means that they’re not exactly prepared to inspire great things from their staff. That’s bad for you, bad for them, and just plain bad for business.
Tune in every week to hear which stories mean the most to you in your career.
