“5 Reasons Not to Resign Publicly” published

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

The editor of the women’s newsletter, “Woman Around Town” which is distributed to a subscriber based in New York City and Washington DC, asked Susan to write an article detailing why Greg Smith’s very public resignation from Goldman Sachs is not the right career move for most people.  Timing is everything, so while the subject of the public resignation was being hashed and rehashed in the media, the article demanded a quick turnaround.  Since Susan felt passionate about the lessons learned from this very public “airing of views”,  she wrote fast and furious, after listening to or reading views from such varied sources as “Real Time with Bill Maher”, the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, and tumblr blogs.   Here is the result of  her rapid typing.  It was suggested that a number in the title (hence, a list) and in the content of the story would guarantee that the content could be organized, read and digested in an instant.  The article was published in today’s “Woman Around Town”.  You can view the article at www.womanaroundtown.com or via the direct link: http://www.womanaroundtown.com/sections/living-around/5-reasons-not-to-resign-publicly
