Burning Bridges

Oh how burning bridges can make it more difficult to move a career forward.  What’s more is that it’s so easily avoided when you can remember the word “diplomacy”.  Of course sometimes there is nothing that can be done about the situation however most often just thinking before speaking is the “Golden Rule” in most situation.  Here are a few scenarios that can avoid the burning bridge.

When you are turning down a job offer or not getting involved with office politics or being careful what you say in your exit interview or avoiding gossip and passing on bad information, these are just a few that come to my mind   This is one time where being “perfectly honest” might not be the best idea.  Actually this is one of the values that having a good external recruiter working with you to help navigate these waters.
