An odd thing happened to me a few months ago when I was approached at a Conference in SF by a gentleman. I expected he’d help me break into his Company, but I immediately realized his intentions were others…I cut all contact and never heard of him again…until I saw he looked me up on LinkedIn (thank goodness I have it set to private). But what is this all about?
IS it that hard to be taken seriously? Or is it not me at all — but rather these certain individuals?
I do dress conservatively, I do keep hair out of my eyes with minimal makeup, I don’t know where or what provokes this unwanted attention. I’m in pursuit of advice, other stories, books–anything! As I hope to climb the ladder into new jobs and positions, I fear this is something I can never leave behind.
Any input, reactions, comments is appreciate my workplace ladies! (and men!)
