“Part career guide, part cautionary tale; part memoir, part motivation. With the candor and charm of a big sister/best friend, Jennifer Romolini has magically written a book as funny as it is wise.” (Rumaan Alam, author of Rich & Pretty)
“Jennifer Romolini has written a career guide for actual humans. Humans who make mistakes, have feelings, and are learning every day. Her advice is practical and no-nonsense while still being wonderfully empathetic, warm and funny. I would tell you this book is perfect for a woman just starting her career, but the honest truth is that even though I’ve been a manager for several years, I learned so much from Jenn about how to lead: with high expectations and compassion.” (Jessica Grose, editor in chief of Lenny and author of Soulmates and Sad Desk Salad)
From the Back Cover
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.
