Don’t be a Bob Bummer – Attitude is key

Dr. Kelso’s life isn’t easy. His wife of 44 years is a wheelchair-bound paraplegic and he lost his beloved dog, Baxter. Disappointment in his family members’ choices is also a constant topic of discussion when chatting with Dr. Kelso. While we all have our personal lives, it can sometimes affect our attitudes and productivity at work, as well as the way we are perceived in a job interview. It’s important to remember to keep a line between your private life and work life. Your interviewer does not want to know all the details of your personal woes as it is likely to color their assessment of you. Avoid becoming a Bob Bummer like Dr. Kelso and sending the wrong message.
