This was one of the books recommended in Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office, and it's right along the same lines, but it focuses specifically on self-promotion. It might just as easily have been called How to Talk So Employers Will Listen and is full of "bragologues" to give you the gist. Here are the keys to a good bragologue: (1) tell it like a story (2) be enthusiastic about the subject and (3) sprinkle in your contribution to it along the way.

Here's my sample bragologue: "I never thought of myself as a numbers/accounting person; I was decidedly a word person. But my most challenging responsibility in my present job is to prepare estate tax returns. I was thrown into it, sink or swim, and not only did I learn to swim, I actually enjoy it. I like taking all those chaotic financial records the clients provide and turning them into a coherent report good enough for the eyes of the tax authorities. Basically, I enjoy the feeling of a job well done."

Here's another. "My daily commute is an hour and a half each way, and I spend most of it reading. My tastes are pretty eclectic, not what you'd expect from a Hasidic woman. That's why I cite so many books in ordinary conversation. Reading is a big part of my life."

So now you've got an inkling of what this book has to teach, and if you don't feel like reading the whole thing, you can go to the website at www.bragbetter.com and download the "Take 12" questionnaire. The book is a little repetitive, but I'm grateful for the bragologues. May Hashem help that I get to use a few in job interviews.
