Now with the Internet, social media, and the unrelenting hum of 24/7 business, the ability to brand and promote yourself effectively has become absolutely essential.

So, how do you stand out and get ahead?The subtle and amazingly effective art of self-promotion is the razor-thin difference between success and failure. By drawing on exclusive research on the modern workplace and countless interviews with the most dynamic professionals, career guru and founder of Millennial Branding Dan Schawbel's "Promote Yourself "gives you the new rules for success, and answers your most pressing questions about your career: * What are managers really looking for?
* What do you do if you're stuck at work?

Review quote

I love this book. "Promote Yourself" is absolutely the best all-around book I've read about and for Millennials. From the very first paragraph to the last, Dan Schawbel offers clear insights, persuasive facts, compelling examples, and practical tips on what you need to do to be successful in the new world of work. And not only that, it's exceptionally well written. "Promote Yourself" is straight-from-the-heart and direct from Dan's own experiences in practicing what he preaches. You really need to read "Promote Yourself" now...and to put it to use as soon as you have. And one other thing: If you're not a Millennial, you've got even more reasons to read this book. You need to know how they're thinking, and "Promote Yourself" is the best place to start learning just that.--Jim Kouzes, coauthor of The Leadership Challenge and the Dean's Executive Fellow of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University
