Get the Company to Buy You a $1,200 Lanyard
An editor at a tech app owned by Microsoft told me that her company recently sent her to a two-day social media and marketing workshop at Harvard. "It's a way to learn more about my field, but it's also nice to know your boss thinks it's worthwhile to invest in you." While it's not exactly a free vacation, a conference or workshop can offer a break from the daily grind while giving you a chance to network. Your company isn't just picking up the (considerable) cost of your attending, they're also helping you meet your next employer. Who, one hopes, will pay you more.
