Always interesting to come across something from a therapy blog, and see how clearly it plays out in a professional environment. Cognitive Distortions exist everywhere, but they can really hurt you in your career. Take a look at some of the things listed in here and think about how you may be blinded by your own distortions when it comes to your career, and how you see yourself succeeding or failing, versus how you really are performing.
Can't say enough about the importance of considering your personal brand when it comes to social networks, blogs, and other online presence. There simply is no excuse these days for not networking, connecting with folks in your industry and using these tools in some way to show off your knowledge and skills. It absolutely helps you stand out when a recruiter or potential employer can look back at years worth of posts and gain insight into how you think how you solve problems, how you interact with others that they can't get in an interview with other candidates.
Of course, that also assumes you're not ruining your brand on social media too, but you know better than that, right?
This makes sense. I had not ever thought about it before but thinking about hiring a woman versus a man, and whether the woman is up to the challenge, looks a whole lot different when it's your daughter, sister, etc.
I would say this is true about any organization, not just eDiscovery companies.
