Meeting Notes

Meeting Notes is a weekly feature. Here we will dish on tidbits, news, and important things we think Working Girls should know. So scroll down to hear what we think you should glean from this work week.

  • In the publishing world, advertising sales reps are usually offered monetary incentives to sell more ad pages. Incentives are almost never offered to marketing or editorial departments, let alone the assistants. Until now. At Conde Nast, the sales assistants are fighting to the assistant of the month award. The Prize: $500. [via Gawker]
  • So you're cool with being Facebook friends with your boss and coworkers but are you cool with them seeing everything on your profile? Corporette has a fantastic tutorial on setting your privacy settings for your coworkers.
  • Thinking about switching careers? Not sure where to start? NonSociety's Meghan interviews consultant Jeff Saperstein for some advice here. Tip #1: Get a mentor. Sounds like a no brainer but I'm sure more of us Working Girls could use a good mentor.
  • If you love Sex & The City and Lipstick Jungle the perfect webseries is in the works for you! MORE magazinea and Candace Bushnell have teamed up to create The Boardroom. If it's anything like Lipstick Jungle, I wont be watching. I was a Cashmere Mafia girl. [via Jezebel]

I hate it when they don't keep those shows like Cashmere Mafia on the air.. or when they nixed Lipstick Jungle when it was startin to get good.

(Can I pretty please ask you to remove the word verification if you are going to comment mod?) Thanks..

i was a cashmere mafia girl too! Isn't it crazy that they started 2 very similar shows at the same time and didn't keep neither of them. Disappointing.
