ForumWatch: The Office Hookup
For interns and new MBA grads, the office can be fraught with sexual tension, yet few business schools advise students how to deal with it. Is an office romance ever O.K.? (Photograph by PhotoAlto/Frederic Cirou/Getty Images)

Business schools spend lots of time telling students how to interview, network, and hit the ground running when preparing them for internships and full-time jobs. There’s lots of talk about career paths and negotiating salaries. Yet no one ever talks about obstacles and challenges, such as a boss who makes sexual advances toward employees. Recently, Bloomberg Businessweek gathered advice for MBAs on this very topic in “Sex at Work: An MBA Guide.” In addition, we asked participants on the Bloomberg Businessweek Business School Forums if they would date co-workers. Share your opinion at the “Sex at the Office” discussion thread.

Editor’s Note: This blog post is part of a series about discussions taking place on the Bloomberg Businessweek Business School Forums, where prospective MBA program applicants, current students, and recent alumni trade admissions tips, job-hunting advice, and the occasional barbed comment. We invite you to join these discussions or start one of your own.
