THE NEW YORK TIMES AND WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER!

“Dan will show you how to communicate your unique contribution, so that you make yourself indispensable.” - From the Foreword by Marcus Buckingham, New York Times bestselling author of Now, Discover Your Strengths.

Book summary

How people perceive you at work has always been vital to a successful career. Now with the Internet, social media, and the unrelenting hum of 24/7 business, the ability to brand and promote yourself effectively has become absolutely essential. No matter how talented you are, it doesn’t matter unless managers can see those talents and think of you as an invaluable employee, a game-changing manager, or the person whose name is synonymous with success. So, how do you stand out and get ahead? Promote Yourself frees you from the outdated rules for getting ahead and lays out a step-by-step process for building a successful career in an age of ever-changing technologies and economic uncertainty. Schawbel provides you with the unique skills and message that you’ll need today and for the rest of your career. Promote Yourself is the definitive book on how to build an outstanding career.
