I’m in the “Best Companies To Work For” lounge, and I have to say, it’s a pretty good lounge. It’s quiet, they gave me a free soft drink, and I can plug in my laptop. I’m not sure if it’s sanctioned, but I can stick my feet under a skirted table and take off my shoes, too! (Boy, these old HR meeting habits come back to me so easily.)
One woman asked me, “What do you do?”
I told her that I blogged about HR issues, and she told me that blogs make her nervous.
Another guy asked me what I’m writing about. I said, “HR stuff.”
He said, “What’s the name of your publication?”
I said, “Punk Rock HR.”
He said, “Yeah. Okay.” Then he walked away from me.
So much for networking!
