As my career winds its way from broadcast research analyst to grizzled audience research veteran I am grateful for the lessons I have learned along the way. From my first boss I realized that the three hour lunch break is probably not as productive as she wanted others to believe. I was also taught, the hard way, that although you may be imminently qualified for a promotion you may not be given the opportunity. I also learned from a sales manager that skinny dipping in front of clients was perhaps not the best career move. Another story for another day!
