If being in the professional work force has taught you anything, it’s that you really have to think before you speak. I mean, really stop and think. The jokes that fly between you and your BFF don’t always translate well between 9 and 5. And the brutal honesty you share with your friends (“Why are you dating that loser?” “That shirt makes you look like my grandmother.” “Really, a little Listerine goes a long way.”) won’t earn you any new work friends. It might even get you fired.
Never fear! Bring some fun into the workplace thanks to CareerBuilder.com’s new interactive campaign, Anonymous Tip Giver. Just don’t get too carried away. Remember, not everyone shares your sense of humor.
Just go to the site, pick a fun character to use a the visual, decide whom you want to not-so-gently give a tip to, and hit send. You can tell your co-workers or your boss that their make-up could be toned down a bit or that their cologne has been giving you asthma for years now. Or you can pick from a pre-made list of tips like, “One out of 10 people think your barking dog ring tone is funny, that one person is you.”
Have fun with friends, colleagues, family, and co-workers! Let us know if you come up with any good tips to share with our readers.
