I started writing for Salt as an intern back in June 2013. I had just finished my film and television bachelor’s degree at Boston University and was a couple months away from moving to NYC for my career dreams.   Writing for this community helped me process my decision to move—as well as a number of other financial decisions I’ve made. I thank… (Show more)

A month ago, I finished an 8-month contract as an associate story producer for a TV show. I was in between jobs. Nothing new for a freelancer.   After a few interviews, I got an offer to work on another show, but the start date was a month away. That meant 4 weeks until I started working, and then another week before seeing a paycheck. That’s a… (Show more)

I’ve gotten better at this, but I still struggle… (Show more)

I’ve worked at three different companies at this point in my career, and each had a different method of evaluating its people. One even changed its process for performance reviews before I had a chance to get through my first cycle!   We just wrapped up performance reviews for the first half of the year at my current employer, Facebook, so the… (Show more)

We all love to hear that we’re doing a good job. Whether it’s in school, on the job, or in some other related context, praise is reassuring and celebratory. It means you’ll get favorable results if you just keep on doing what you’re doing.   But the issue with praise is that if you just keep doing what you’re doing, you’re never going to get any… (Show more)

If you just had a phone interview and they documented every answer to every question they asked you and they end up liking you. The next step is they set you up to do a in person interview with the hiring manager for that specific job.   But during the in person interview i was asked the same exact questions and she was reading the documented… (Show more)
