The Brazen Careerist

post # 361 — April 25, 2007 — a Careers post

Penelope Trunk, a/k/a The Brazen Careerist, writes one of the most enjoyable blogs around.

She writes so well that even if you’re not in her target audience (Generation X or Y), or currently in the market for career advice, she’s nevertheless worth making a daily habit.

She’s also just publishing a book, also called The Brazen Careerist, written in the same attention grabbing, helpful style.

Here, for example, is the opening of one of her chapters:

“Here is a message for people who say they can’t stomach office politics: you will die a slow, painful career death.”

Essential, fun stuff!
