No matter where you are in your career, Aliza Licht’s professional story and advice will resonate.
This is the thought that ran through my head, repeatedly, when I finished Aliza Licht’s book, Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill It in Your Career. Rock Social Media. This book needs to be added to the required reading lists in our high schools and colleges. Topics include “Writing a Killer Cover Letter” and “Being a Likeable Leader.”
Taking the reader with her as she describes the hustle it took not only to get her foot in the door, but also to ascend to her current position, Licht effortlessly offers details and insights on how anyone else could accomplish this, too!
This book has something for everyone in it. First, college students still needing an internship. Then, those just starting out in their career. Finally, those looking to make a change. This book has something you can employ, as you search for whatever it is that you would like to be doing.
Furthermore, this book has such an extensive collection of information. It should be a college course, toughy by Aliza Licht.
