by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2015
Are you looking forward to your first day in a different job? Or maybe you're preparing to welcome a new colleague? My worst first day was 30 years ago, but I still remember it vividly. I was a few years out of law school and shifting to a new firm in the nation's capital. The title on my business card read "partner," instead of "associate," in deference to the clients I was able to bring along with me. Well in advance...
