    Posted on by Heather

    On an episode of the (slightly unfathomably) popular MTV reality show ‘The Hills’ one of the most important Professional Development lessons was illustrated tonight: do not get drunk at work functions, especially when you are supposed to be working!  It is just a simple NO. NO, NO NO.  And, no exceptions.

    This is not a point, and granted I appreciate my rigidness on this issue, that is non-negotiable.  Excessive alcohol consumption and professional life do not mix.

    This is not to say that you can’t go to a networking event and sip on a cocktail while engaging with new contacts on a more social basis.  This is not to say, don’t go for a celebratory drink with a colleague after signing a big deal. This is to say, stop at one.  And again, I reiterate – no exceptions.

    Protect your reputation, your integrity and your credibility – keep your professional life professional.

    1. I just want to agree with your point. I will have to watch that episode of the Hills :)
