what’s the worst career advice you ever received?

There is a lot of bad career advice out there, being dispensed from parents, friends, coworkers, campus career centers, and even professional advice givers. From suggestions that you lie to get a job to being told that there’s nothing wrong with not eating a business lunch, bad advice abounds … and I want to hear your most egregious examples of it.

You recently shared the best career advice you ever received, and now it’s time for the worst. So — what’s the worst career advice you ever received, and who gave it to you? And you’ll get bonus points if it’s not about job searching, since that’s such an easy target.
