Wanna climb the corporate ladder? Listen up...

gapingvoid has a nice post called "The Career Manifesto" with an interesting list of tips for employees who want to quickly climb up the corporate ladder. Check it out...

This is the one I liked the most:
2. Yes, your boss is an idiot at times. So what? (Do you think your associates sit around and marvel at your deep thoughts?) If you cannot give your boss basic loyalty, either report the weasel to the proper authorities or be gone.
And these made a lot of sense too...
1. Unless you’re working in a coal mine, an emergency ward, or their equivalent, spare us the sad stories about your tough job. The biggest risk most of us face in the course of a day is a paper cut.

9. Don’t expect to be perfect. Focus on doing right instead of being right. It will simplify the world enormously.

6. Your technical skills may impress the other geeks, but if you can’t get along with your co-workers, you’re a litigation breeder. Don’t be surprised if management regards you as an expensive risk.
Check it out here.
