Bragging! You need to do a lot of it during your job search process.

One of my clients just finished a great [short] book that you may find helpful,  Brag! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It.  Peggy Klaus is a communications coach who works with individuals and Fortune 500 companies on a national/international basis.  My client has known Peggy for many years through a professional woman’s organization and seen her coaching in action!   Her book is a quick read and builds on some of the concepts that we’ve talked about in the dear jane blog. Peggy is especially effective at crafting short “brag bites” and “bragologues” that we can use in just about any situation. Many of the local libraries carry her book (non fiction, 650.1 K).    You can buy it on amazon.com as well.

    Great blog Rebecca! You are an awesome coach….thanks for all your career transition knowledge and positive energy. After 16 years with one company it was a change to get out there interviewing and “tooting my horn” though with your over the top resume writing skills, you helped me create a resume that truly spoke for itself. Tooting my horn became very natural.
