Meet the Author

Hannah Seligson was a new girl on the job-and then she got fired. As she searched for answers and support about workplace success, she realized there was no book that encompassed all of the very commons questions and issues young women face in today's workforce. So she decided to write one herself.

Ms. Seligson is a 2004 graduate of Brown University. She is currently a freelance journalist in New York. Her work has appeared in The New York Post, The Daily News, The Village Voice, and The Huffington Post. She is currently working on her second book. <%END_COMM_GRP%>
