News Around The Kingdom: “J.T. and Dale Talk Jobs” Recap

by The King

Greetings Comics Kingdom Royals!

Welcome back to the Comics Kingdom Blog! Today marks the end of J.T. O’Donnell and Dale Dauten, nationally syndicated columnists of “J.T. and Dale Talk Jobs,” guest blogging on the Comics Kingdom blog. It’s been a thrill having them!  We hope you have enjoyed their career banter and will put their expert advice to good use in your own workplace and career endeavors. We encourage you to read their weekly column, “J.T. and Dale Talk Jobs” in your local newspaper (if it’s available) or online. If “J.T. and Dale Talk Jobs” isn’t available in your local newspaper’s print or online editions, reach out to the editor and ask them why not!

For those who may have missed their blog posts, here’s a recap:  On Monday J.T. and Dale introduced themselves in an in-depth Q&A featured in Editor’s Dispatch; on Tuesday they looked at our Top Ten Comics on Career and Workplace, which you can find here; on Wednesday cartoonists chatted about the times in their lives when they knew they had to quit their jobs; and on Thursday, the Archivist shared his picks on the comics’ most horrible and memorable bosses … some of which rendered J.T. and Dale speechless with their workplace etiquette (or lack thereof) and silly antics!

If you enjoy their career advice, then please follow J.T. O’Donnell on Twitter and LinkedIn or check out her website, CAREEREALISM. Comics Kingdom fans are invited to discover more about Dale Dauten at www.dauten.com.
