When you have a career question, where do you turn? You can’t ask a coworker for advice. Office gossip spreads like wildfire. You don’t know whether to trust your friends. And they might not be qualified to provide an answer about your area of expertise.

That’s why TechRepublic offers you the opportunity to seek advice from our career coach, Kevin Rosenberg. Kevin is managing director and partner of BridgeGate LLC, a California-based search firm. Every month, you’ll find his column, Career Compass, in the IT Manager community. It’s one of the most popular features in TechRepublic.

Have you missed some of Kevin’s latest columns? Download “Answers to the top 20 career questions” to catch up on his advice. We’ve compiled the most frequently asked questions and answers into one document. Learning what other IT pros are experiencing on the job provides a great way to develop your own career strategy—and it’s a smart way to avoid making career mistakes.
We can’t answer every letter but we’ll try to answer most of them. Send a letter to Kevin.
