I also was not a fan of the story that called out a young woman who relied on her mother to help snag her first job. It didn’t sound like a case of the helicopter mom or nepotism but rather a mom just trying to put in a good word for her daughter. I’ve had friends and family do this for me before applying for a position. It’s not like the mother was going to do the interview or write her resume. She was just trying to use her connections to get her daughter an interview. Isn’t that what networking is for? What I find hypocritical is that later on in the book, the author had an editor put in a good word for her and got a call for an interview for it. How is this any different?
Not only did the tone turn me off but the lack of helpful advice. Most of the topics she covers would fall into the “common sense” category or could be found by googling tips for interviewing, resume writing, and professionalism. Perhaps if you lived under a rock you wouldn’t know proper social media or email etiquette? The chapter on “text message speak and other ways to ruin your chances” was particularly condescending. The entire chapter screamed a great big “DUH.” I’m a millennial myself and give people the benefit of the doubt that they’d know better.Read more ›
This isn’t a boring, dry business book, it’s a heart-felt story of one girl who worked hard and learned along the way. Aliza wrote Leave Your Mark as a mentorship guide to help others find their passion and path. Her story is proof that working hard can take you great places. You’ll learn about how to create fantastic email pitches, PR tips, how to kill it in your career – all things that you can apply to a job search, your current job or even to find success on your own path.
A must read for graduates, millennials in the workplace, or anyone wanting to excel in their career.
In other words, your career success starts with (and depends on) YOU taking responsibility for owning your passions, actively managing your career and walking your talk. And as a professional career coach and someone who shares Aliza’s passion and vigor for helping people land their dream jobs, I couldn’t agree more and enthusiastically dived in.
Whether you are just launching your career or are an experienced professional, you’re in luck, because social media superstar and PR powerhouse Aliza Licht has written the bomb-diggity bible of career development that traverses all ages and industries. And as SVP of Global Communications for Donna Karan International, a global mentor and the identity behind DKNY PR GIRL (with over half a million Twitter followers to boot), Licht knows a thing or two about building and leveraging a powerful personal brand to catapult your career forward.
Part personal branding blueprint, communication and etiquette code and motivational makeover, LEAVE YOUR MARK is Licht’s way of sharing a cup of joe and some candid career conversation with her global mentees past, present and future, all-in-one.
Chock full of saavy strategies, eye-opening anecdotes, as well as don’t do’s and must-do’s, Licht dishes out solid, actionable advice that she has personally experienced, learned and tested. And the fact that she delivers it with a healthy and heartfelt dose of street smarts, wit, humor, sass and passion, is what makes its messages and morals all the more easy to gobble up, digest and jump in feet first and get crankin’ on applying.Read more ›
