Maybe she thought she was networking.
Brooke Hundley created national headlines recently when her affair with married baseball analyst Steve Phillips cost both of them their jobs at the sports network and grabbed headlines when news of her harassment toward his family became public. But RadarOnline.com has obtained some career tips for getting ahead in the workplace that Hundley wrote — tips that include the value of networking! And yes, these tips are seen in a brand new light considering recent events.
Hundley sent them via a letter to her former dean at the Park School of Communications at Ithaca College in New York. Hundley wrote the how-to-get-ahead advice in April 2007 after she attended the International Radio and Television Society’s annual two-day career workshop and job fair.
– “Networking is not sucking up”
– “Appearance matters … So put your best stuff first and make an
impression that counts, it may ultimately determine a job offer.”
– “You only get one chance to shine, so make sure you’re ready for it.”
After their brief relationship ended this summer, Hundley contacted Phillips’ sixteen-year old son on Facebook, damaged Phillips’ home, and contacted his wife, giving her a letter containing graphic details of her affair with the analyst.
