Anyone looking to enter the modern workplace should know that the old way of doing business is just that – old. Used-up phrases and cliches are out of style, and this article points out the worst offenders.
With great graphics and the history behind each tired business phrase, the article entertains the whole way through! Cheesy office sayings are not modern or cool, and the illustrations show you why.
