As times change, so do norms of behavior in the office. 301 Smart Answers to Tough Business Etiquette Questions has the answers you need to survive daily life in a professional environment. Following the same popular Q&A format of her bestselling 301 Smart Answers to Tough Interview Questions, Oliver will tell you how to get the job and keep it by navigating all the intricacies of the modern workplace.
Where other etiquette guides evoke images of a stilted and stuffy Victorian tea party, Oliver’s witty answers to common questions are both engaging and accessible. She believes that etiquette is not a throwback to some bygone age, but has a direct and tangible impact on your career right here and now. Off come the white gloves as she tears away the corporate veil to reveal things they still don’t teach at Harvard Business School, such as:
Making a good first impression (and how to fix a bad one!)
How to behave in elevators, airplanes, and supply closets
Surviving cabs, commutes, and coffee shops
Why time is not necessarily money everywhere on the planet
Pre-approved conversational topics from A to Z
Dining rules and regulations for the twenty-first century
What to do when you are suddenly unemployed
And much more!

Following the same breezy-to-read format as her first bestseller, 301 Smart Answers to Tough Business Etiquette Questions will
help you get the job, keep the job, be next in line for that elusive promotion or pay bump. This is a fabulous, fun read, but it's
also genuinely practical and down-to-earth. While other etiquette guides are as crusty as a Miss Manners guide, Vicky Oliver's witty
but wise answers to 301 everyday problems are truly engaging. I learned the top email snafus to avoid, several important dining rules
that I never knew, tons of information about communicating via the new media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), and how to present myself
while traveling abroad. Buy it for a young professional just starting out or for anyone whose business success you truly care about. You won't be sorry!

Her focus in this new book is workplace etiquette, a critical but often overlooked subject. With her typical stylish blend of frank explanation and good humor she addresses all those worrying questions, from proper behavior when interacting in a foreign country to the rules of engagement in various networking media, and much more. This book is an essential and delightful read for anyone hoping to do his or her best in daily interactions with others.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
