About the Book

Career Insights From A Diversity Recruiter

As a graduate recruiter for most of the top 50 business schools*, I hear many college graduates say they don't know how to get started in their careers. Since more women graduate college than men, the gap between education and employment impacts them as they face career transition. Women also carry the majority of college debt (1), which increases both the stakes and mistakes of moving into the workforce.

The setbacks women experience become "non-starters". Non-starters turn qualified applicants into underemployed workers who are overqualified for jobs.

Careerismo resolves problems women experience before they happen and moves them forward into professional careers. It turns non-starters into career starts for women.

Some topics covered in this book include:

- Keeping confidence on your side and in your stride. In the workplace, people value everything more if you can deliver it with confidence. I explain how confidence is built internally, forms as part of a team and can be specific to your expertise in a domain. You will discover how confidence can be replicated, transferred and multiplied to other areas of work and endeavors in life.

- Identifying your unique combination of skills unlocks career direction. Our culture idolizes people with superhuman skills. Employers require a list of skills you need to apply. Relying on one extraordinary skill or a set of standalone skills IS NOT the only way to succeed. By shifting your focus off from listing skills on a resume, I free you to think 21st Century and show you how to combine an inventory of skills with interests which maps to relevant career paths.

- Extending "who you know" is a natural, easy way to form relationships. "Your people" are the "connective tissue" of building professional relationships. I explain how connections are formed by having conversations with real people who share your interests. Up to 80 percent of all career opportunities today are found through these types of relationship networks. Extending "who you know" leads you to managers who promote and hire for the best fit with jobs and project assignments.

* I have recruited for schools such as MIT, Duke, Cornell, UC Berkeley, NYU, Emory, Georgetown, UCLA, Vanderbilt and the London Business School.
