Career Coach: Who to Hire, Who to Fire

The Stay-at-Home-Spouse

The Stay-At-Home-Spouse remembers, longingly, the intellectual engagement of the office; the happy hum of corporate life before the arrival of children or the trauma of economic dislocation. His other half's job keeps the wolves from the door, so why not tackle his own career ennui by helping others achieve some excitement in theirs.


Hire: The SAHS is all about empathy; he feels and shares your pain. He doesn't have a ton of clients so your success is his success. Heck, you may even hire him at your next job. So he's gonna work hard to help you achieve a breakthrough. Evenings, weekends, it's all good.

Fire: The SAHS doesn't possess the keys to the temple, otherwise he wouldn't be bored witless while working from his dining room table in Cos Cob. Hence he may default to prepackaged programs: the "Seven S's of Self-actualization" and whatnot. Sadly, the blind leading the blind can often lead down blind alleys.
