From the creator of the Dear Businesslady column comes a fresh, proactive book with advice for women entering the workforce as well as those looking to move up the ladder. Everyone deals with some nonsense early in their career--whether it's accepting a less-than-ideal position just to get a foot in the door, or having a manager who sleeps with his smartphone under his pillow and expects his staff to do the same. But how do young professionals know if the choices they're making are moving them closer to their ultimate career goals? How do they know the answer when they ask themselves, "Is This Working?" Courtney Guerra, a.k.a. The Businesslady, knows how to set you on the path where you belong. In a fun-to-read Q&A format, this book focuses on situations young people are likely to encounter in the workplace, along with a set of strategies you can use to get through them. In her signature tone that has gained her hundreds of thousands of readers, Guerra discusses topics relevant to young professionals, like how to make the jump from "just a job" to a career in line with what you went to school for, and how to stay productive when working from home at an apartment filled with distractions. No matter what the scenario, The Businesslady has the answer to get you on the path to long-term career success.
