Special Order - Subject to Availability
Jennifer Romolini started her career as an awkward twenty-seven-year-old misfit, navigated her way through New York media, and became a boss--an editor-in-chief, an editorial director, and a vice president--all within little more than a decade. Her book, Weird In A World That's Not, asserts that being outside-the-norm and achieving real, high-level success are not mutually exclusive, even if the perception of the business world often seems otherwise, even if it seems like only office-politicking extroverts are set up for reward.Part career memoir, part real-world guide, Weird in a World That's Not offers relatable advice on how to achieve your dreams, even when the odds seem stacked against you. Romolini helps you face down your fears, find a career that's right for you, and get and keep a job. She tackles practical issues and offers empathetic, clear-cut answers to important questions: - How do I navigate the awkwardness of networking? - How do I deal with intense office politics? - How do I leave my crappy job? - How do I learn how to be a boss not just a #boss?- And, most importantly: How do I do all this and stay true to who I really am?Authentic, funny, and moving, Weird in a World that's Not will help you tap into your inner tenacity and find your path, no matter how offbeat you are.
