‘Is This Working? The Businesslady’s Guide to Getting What You Want from Your Career’ Is Here!

Do you have your copy?

Last night, I got my copy of the newly-released Is This Working? The Businesslady’s Guide to Getting What You Want from Your Career—which, if you haven’t yet guessed from the title, is by Courtney C.W. Guerra, aka Businesslady of Billfold column fame!

The book includes smart, current-dated answers to real-life questions like:

“How do people find viable job openings?” (“A certain degree of desperation pretty much comes with the territory, but persevere!”)

“Should I pick passion over paycheck or the other way around?” (“It’s easy to get so caught up in the hope/disappointment cycle of the job search that you forget you’re actually setting the stage for a life-changing decision.”)

“Should I just grit my teeth and take the blame [for my boss’s mistake], hoping this doesn’t happen again?” (“It’s almost never a good idea to just silently accept blame for something that isn’t actually your fault.”)

There are questions about how to adjust your sleep cycle to a new job, how to deal with emotional and household labor when both you and your partner have time-consuming jobs, how to avoid procrastination—a question that isn’t answered in the way you might expect—and more.

If you’ve enjoyed The Businesslady’s Billfold column, you’ll definitely enjoy this book. It also makes an excellent gift, especially for a college graduate. Or a grad-school graduate. Or a person who just got their first job. Or a person who’s considering changing careers.
