A list of awesome flicks with solid career lessons. In some instances, those lessons are clear while in other cases, they're less than obvious. And kind of hilarious.
The Devil Wears Prada
Valuable career lesson: Sometimes from the outside it seems like we should take that amazing-sounding job or do that one little thing for our bosses that’s actually completely inappropriate – until one day we find out the job has completely taken over our lives. When it comes to drastic career moves, trust your gut on what feels right and what feels like too big a compromise.
The Pursuit of Happyness
Valuable career lesson: It’s never too late to change your career and “make something” of yourself. Also? Life is hard. Deal with it.
The Social Network
Valuable career lesson: Sell out your friends, be an asshole and you will be one of the most successful people on the planet. But that doesn’t mean you won’t Facebook-stalk your exes just like the rest of us.
Valuable career lesson: It is, in fact, possible to love what you do, make a difference and have an “important” career without being a completely asshole in the process.
