The Post About What Your Workspace Says About You

Recently, I was part of a team who hired for a new position at my agency. One of the prospects mentioned in an interview that you can tell a lot about a person by the appearance of his or her office.

Let's see if that's true.
Office Nameplate
I really love my name due to its bionic nature. But you rabbit readers already knew that.

T-Shirt Wall Hanging
My Mom rocks in many ways, but this is her superpower - quilting. When I started this job almost three years ago, she made a lil' officewarming gift comprised of shirts from previous jobs. I'm attracted to 50/50 preshrunk cotton careers.

Candy Jar
This is my third place of employment with a candy stash. This benefit ranks up there with a 401(k) and a covered parking place.

Margaret Mead Quote and Emory Diploma
That smaller frame cost a LOT less, but says MUCH more.

J Notepad
I'm committed to my name, but I'm seeing the letter "J" on the side.

Empty Frames
Why should I include pictures of my friends and family when they will never be as attractive as this couple?

Coffee Mug
There is still a girlie place in my heart for Mary Englebreit. Plus, this isn't a shabby work ethic.

Camp APAC Pillowcase
This pillowcase is a souvenir from the camp I direct serving adoptive families. It's never bad to have some positive affirmations on the wall above your screeching email inbox.

So what would your workspace tell me about you?

  1. You are cracking me up with the picture frame story.

    Your mom has some serious quilting talent! Wow!

  2. I have the Mary Engelbreit Princess of Quite-a-Lot mug at home that I just can't give up! I think I have a book of her too.

    I too have an empty picture frame but there's not even a fake picture in it. I'm just too indecisive to pick a photo for it. It's been about 6 months.

  3. Were you on Survivor? That orange one looks like a Survivor logo...

  4. L: She's quite handy when you've been a bridesmaid 9 times and stand tall at 5'2"

    W&I: I want you to go draw a picture of Jane Austen right now and put it in that frame. Hope to it.

    A: It was a retreat where we "borrowed" their logo. That would be my luck to be on Survivor and only end up with a t-shirt.

  5. My workspace says the following: I LOVE photography (due to the number of photograhy books stacked on my desk) AND that I enjoy entertaining my inner slob while at work. They don't know me here, so its okay!

  6. MR: Then your workspace is on the money - good job!
