Career Lessons From Orange is the New Black

1. Piper Chapman
1 of 5

Piper has been taken away from her normal yuppie lifestyle and thrown into prison on the basis of a 10 year-old drug charge. What can we learn from this? The decisions we make now can affect our future. Things may just come back to haunt you. When she accidentally badmouths the food to the prison cook she winds up paying the price by being starved out! Remain professional at all times, take care with what you say and who you say it in front of, or you may just end up with a tampon sandwich for lunch! Finding colleagues who you can trust and confide in is of the utmost importance too. Prison-life is not the norm for middle-class educated women. But it’s surprising what you can manage when pushed outside of your comfort zone. You will survive. Successful people know that every person in this world has something to contribute. Most of all, make your time count. Learn new skills and take up new hobbies because you never know when they might come in handy.

You’re thinking, What? We’re supposed to take career lessons from women in prison?

Anyone who has watched this incredible show will know is that it sets out to prove the fact that a lot of the women in these circumstances remain good, strong women. And if that doesn’t convince you, then what better way to learn than through your own mistakes or those of others?..
