What effect, if any, does a smoking habit have on a person's career and opportunities for advancement?
Over at Jobacle today, Andrew G.R. details "the perils of smoking at work":
• Smoking can be a sign of weakness to management.
• It creates a certain perception at work. Smoking is a controversial topic these days, and it depends which person is making the perception whether it is good or bad. Regardless, there is always a stigma attached to the title of "smoker."
• You smell. Sorry, I don't have a nice way to say it. Although I have given up work smoking completely, I enjoy the occasional with a beer. I smell when I do it, and so do you.
I'm curious to know what the rest of you think.
