Dear Experts, I'm headed out on vacation next week. My boss told me today he needs to speak to me at the end of the day on Friday before I leave but wouldn't specify why. I've already gotten everything set up for coverage in my absence, so I all I can think about is that I'm getting let go. I'm freaking out, what can I do? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#225 Meet w boss. Don't worry. Stay calm. (@kgrantcareers) Q#225 What if he's going to give you a gift or something? Don't freak. Should already have resume on standby. (@beneubanks) Q#225 There are many reasons to have quick chat before you leave for the week. Relax and Stay Positive. (@iplawman) Q#225 You have to wait to find out what the issue is. Focus on work. U will know soon enough. (@DebraWheatman) Q#225 First, don't borrow trouble. It could as easily be a promotion. Any way to speak w/him B4 Fri? (@dawnbugni) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
