Publisher's Summary

Get noticed...and get ahead!

All too often, introverts get passed over for job offers and promotions while their more extroverted colleagues get all of the recognition. But it doesn't have to be this way.

In Self-Promotion for Introverts, business-communication coach and intrepid introvert Nancy Ancowitz helps introverts tap into their quiet strengths, articulate their accomplishments, and launch an action plan for gaining career advancement. You will learn how to:

  • Promote yourself without bragging - when networking, on job interviews, and at work
  • Use your quiet gifts (writing, researching, and listening) to your advantage
  • Be a commanding presenter, despite your quieter nature
  • Formulate your best plans, set goals, take action - and even find a better job

Featuring exclusive advice from Warren Buffett, Bill Clinton, Hearst Magazines president Cathie Black, and marketing guru Seth Godin, Self-Promotion for Introverts helps you progress inward, outward, and onward.

Must-read for an introvert !

I am an introvert and have always had trouble promoting myself. Networking is terrifying for me. I could easily relate to the challenges that the author was describing, and it gave me great comfort when author has shared her own experiences and insights. Plenty of useful tips and to-the-point recommendations. Clear, encouraging, inspiring!
