Ah….Super Bowl weekend — but the reading is still good on Cube Rules! Here’s some of the best of the week:
It’s the e-mail snub that gets under the skin after the interviews, isn’t it? You go through hoops, get the face-to-face interview, turn in the right forms after the interview and then…nothing. Zilch. No responses to your e-mails. Or phone calls.

Christine has discovered the name of the next movement: New Work Pioneer.
The tribe’s membership includes those who have ditched traditional workplaces to create their own lifestyles; those – including freelancers and artists – who saw early on that work as we currently know it wasn’t for them; and those who are taking a different kind of consciousness into employment with the aim of giving themselves a more liveable corporate experience.

I saw the preview to this — it was fabulous. Well, the full version is now out and, at 35-minutes long, well worth your time to take a look (and ignore the 3-4 20-second commercials…).

Enjoy your Sunday.
