Abstract:

"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 land a job that you love."--Jacket flap.

An honest, sharp-witted, practical guide to help you get the job you want and keep it - from an outsider who has been there and done that; a woman who went from being a broke, divorced college dropout to running some of the biggest websites in the world. Jennifer Romolini started her career as an awkward twenty-seven-year-old misfit but navigated her way through New York media and became a boss - an editor in chief, an editorial director, and a vice president - in little more than a decade. In Weird in a World That's Not, she asserts that being outside the norm and achieving high-level success are not mutually exclusive, even if it often seems otherwise within the business world, and even if it seems that 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 realize 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 land a job that you love. Tackling practical issues, she 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 to be a boss, not just a #boss? And, most important: 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 your inner tenacity and find your path, no matter how offbeat you are. -- from dust jacket.
