Weird in a World That’s Not
by Jennifer Romolini (read by Em Eldridge)
I wanted to dislike this book for a few reasons: profanity such as is used here can be “try hard”; self-help confessionals are often just humblebrags; and the “weird” in the title – isn’t that just Romolini saying she doesn’t consider herself boring? But this is a book with straightforward career advice for everyone, not just her target audience of millennials. Having gone from “negative money” to helming huge websites, Romolini now has the nous to tell jobseekers the secrets of networking (described as “small talk with a mission”); why LinkedIn is important; how to ask for a pay rise/promotion; and even how to leave a job (“too much notice is a gift to no one”).
