Why We Read Ask a Manager
Han: Ask a Manager is the perfect mix of entertainment and spot-on career advice. Alison Green's expertise as a hiring manager is a great resource—reading her advice has been an invaluable career tool for me, and I have no qualms counting the time I spend reading this site as "professional development." Come for the no-nonsense career advice, stay for the insanity, however: nothing can make you feel better about the dysfunctions of your own workplace like reading a roundup of the year's worst bosses from AAM! Alison's balance of pragmatism and willingness to express shock and horror when something is far outside of the realm of acceptable makes her required reading for anyone who has a job, full stop.
