Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Condensing and interpreting an enormous body of social science research, this book helps young women survive and thrive in their careers. In a recent survey, working women in the millennial generation (aged from 22 to 35) reported persistent concerns of gender bias in the form of inequitable pay scales, corporate cultures that favor men, stereotypes, few women among the top echelons of the organization, and barriers to balancing work and family. Clearly, women continue to face significant obstacles to success in the workplace despite the progress that has occurred in recent decades. How Women Can Make It Work: The Science of Success will help Gen-X, Y, and Z women who are recent high school or college grads, in their first or second job, or new moms weighing decisions about working achieve success and satisfaction in their careers. The information in this book is also invaluable for managers and counselors who work with young women and want to understand the issues they may be facing. Covers invaluable topics for female employees including choosing a career, getting the job, interpersonal relationships at work, communication, advancing in the job, and addressing work-family issues Mixes empirical research findings with personal stories and pop culture references to make the material engaging and meaningful

"Information is easy to find in the book, and the authors enhance their work by suggesting relevant Web resources. In addition to appealing to young women, this book will interest anyone wanting to gain insight into the culture of young women at work, or seeking solutions to problems in a work environment. Many empirical studies are cited, perhaps implying a 'science of success.' In this complicated field, the authors offer good advice." - Choice
