LOL, that is a very good idea. Another co-worker chased out by the same manager has gone to work for a competitor and finds their internal culture a shock after our previous, shared employer.

I am concentrating on writing, capturing my technical experience and, in other areas, turning my personal experience into stories for others to enjoy and gasp in shock and horror.

My "secret" has always be tell the truth, the whole truth, as I have experienced it. I am sure it has cost me as many jobs as it has gotten for me. I am pleasant and interesting, and not very secretive or devious. If I had been, I may not have gotten the job in the first place. I won over the hiring team with my confidence and technical reach, and I tipped the team with my casual honesty. A change in the supervisor brought in someone who hadn't chosen me and found much me confrontational rather than open. It was a learning experience; unfortunately, for me, I didn't learn fast enough.
