Lesson # 9: It's good to be a hoarder

Save digital copies of all emails and documents that pertain to employment offers, start dates, performance reviews, and end dates. Doing so will make your life infinitely easier if/when you are required to provide additional information for a background check...a background check that will determine if you will actually start work on time or not.

Regardless of what A&E tells you to do, this kind of hoarding is (and was!) a lifesaver.
