Be Proud of Your Accomplishments, Not Your Affiliations – Daniel Gulati – Harvard Business Review

16 04 2012

Ironically, proudly flaunting your affiliations — company, university, or club — will only make you more of a commodity: another banker, another Ivy League graduate, another know-it-all scientist.
