This issue begins our second decade of delivering reliable career perspective to rising BV and Lit Support professionals.

Kenny Rogers sings, “You got to know when to hold ‘em. Know when to fold ‘em.” That is certainly true in having a great career. The path to success can be easier where you are if you have a mentor. We suggest ways to make that happen. We offer tips on increasing the odds of capturing that next promotion. Knowing when to “fold ‘em” means knowing whetherthere’s another rung on the ladder. We have some thoughts about that process. When a recruiter calls, does your knee-jerk reaction cause you to miss an opportunity to validate your decision to “hold ‘em”?

We talk to BV professionals all over the country. Why aren’t we talking to you? Call us, in confidence.
