We asked nine professionals about the worst career advice they have ever received. The painful truth is lousy career advice is in abundance, and from their responses, that is not changing anytime soon.
Amanda Kay states, "Some jobs are terrible, but that doesn't mean you should just quit them. Quitting a job is a big deal! You could be unemployed for months and have no way to support yourself or your family.
Tim details his experience, "I did a lot of temp work when I was younger, one day I asked my then manager whether the company was going to keep me on at the end of the contract and offer me the elusive permanent role.
He said that if my face fitted into the team, there was a good chance I could be kept on. There I was doing the best job I could, and it simply came down to whether you could talk about your football team after the weekend games.
