Transcript:

Why do people have such a difficult time talking about their careers? It’s because we tend to be embarrassed and I work so hard in my columns over the years to break through that level of embarrassment and the level of embarrassment isn’t even about being out of a job or in a job. It’s about not having the best job or not having the right job or not having a job as good as my neighbor or…there are so many ways that we kind of internalize this embarrassment and again, that is something I feel very keenly myself. I have kind of that embarrassment thing going on sometimes and I have to actively fight that and say there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. What you are going through is something that everyone goes through.
