I’m sure you felt it. The world stopped and your body shook with trepidation.
I still have great ambivalence about branding myself as punk rock. I challenge the status quo, sure, but I gave up any notion of being ‘punk rock’ in 1996 when I took a job at Monsanto. It’s hard to be punk rock when you’re hiring chemical engineers and chemists who genetically modify food.
Since I make the rules around here — which is a totally appropriate HR attitude, by the way — I feel that I’m qualified to own the moniker of Punk Rock HR Chick. Have something to say about it? Disagree? Have a punk rock HR question? Email me here.
