In this week's edition of Well, This Happened, the series that lets you become a career coach, we addressed Becky's serious and awkward workplace situation.

Becky wrote that she and her co-worker were complaining about a co-worker and client via an email chain. At one point in the conversation, Becky's co-worker accidentally tagged an email list that then sent out her response and the whole email conversation to the ENTIRE company. She's not sure how she can recover from this or what to do next.


Talk about an uncomfortable and unfortunate situation!

Every company policy is different when it comes to these types of mistakes. Some are more lenient than others. Depending on the severity, you might be forced to look for a new job. That said, you shouldn't just ignore the situation and fend for yourself. You need to make things right before you leave, otherwise you're going to have a hard time explaining why you left to potential employers.

Earlier this week we gave four possible options for addressing this. Did you guess right? Find out by watching this video below. To see previous editions of Well, This Happened, visit our website.
