Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
To succeed at work, career counselor and Wall Street Journal contributor Dominguez argues, employees need to have smarts and be creative-but they also must know how to play the game. That involves dealing with ever-changing bosses, marketing themselves to superiors and peers, mastering office politics, coping with difficult workers and landing promotions and raises in any economy. Dominguez explains how to do all these things and more. By laying out possible scenarios and then offering tips on how to act, she teaches readers how to get along at work, create plans for moving ahead in their careers and craft graceful exits should they decide to leave. Her style is accessible and her tone is realistic, and she employs examples from actual companies like AT&T and Starbucks. Anyone who's encountered cranky coworkers, incompetent bosses or other tough personalities-or is just having a difficult time getting ahead in the office-will find coping strategies in these pages.
