about

An honest, sharp-witted, practical guide to help you get and keep the job you want—from an outsider whose been there and done it, a woman who went from being a broke, divorced, college dropout to running some of the biggest websites in the world.

Jennifer Romolini started her career as an awkward twenty-seven-year-old misfit, navigated her way through New York media and became a boss—an editor-in-chief, an editorial director, and a vice president—all within little more than a decade. Her book, Weird In A World That’s Not, asserts that being outside-the-norm and achieving real, high-level success are not mutually exclusive, even if the perception of the business world often seems otherwise, even if it seems like only office-politicking extroverts are set up for reward.

Part career memoir, part real-world guide, Weird in a World That’s Not offers relatable advice on how to achieve your dreams, even when the odds seem stacked against you. Romolini helps you face down your fears, find a career that’s right for you, and get and keep a job. She tackles practical issues and offers empathetic, clear-cut answers to important questions:

  • How do I navigate the awkwardness of networking?
  • How do I deal with intense office politics?
  • How do I leave my crappy job?
  • How do I learn how to be a boss not just a #boss?
  • And, most importantly: How do I do all this and stay true to who I really am?

Authentic, funny, and moving, Weird in a World That’s Not will help you tap into your inner tenacity and find your path, no matter how offbeat you are.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious and a Little Inappropriate This book was fun, interesting and informative for those who are looking to be successful writers, or anyone who is a little clueless in the social world. Great read, and great for feminists and people who are not easily offended.

Editorial Reviews

“Jennifer Romolini has written a career guide for actual humans. Humans who make mistakes, have feelings, and are learning every day. Her advice is practical and no-nonsense while still being wonderfully empathetic, warm and funny. I would tell you this book is perfect for a woman just starting her career, but the honest truth is that even though I’ve been a manager for several years, I learned so much from Jenn about how to lead: with high expectations and compassion.”
