Career guide for women a finalist in 2012 global eBook awards
A career guide by Australian business executive and career specialist, Karen Adamedes has been named as a finalist in the Careers/Employment category of the Global eBook Awards for 2012.
"Hot Tips For Career Chicks; unlocking the CODE to success" provides unique insights into the subtleties and nuances of work-place culture. The framework for the book is a four-step CODE to success - good Communication, a defined Operating Style, proactive career Development and prioritizing Everything else.
Although applicable to anyone developing a career, "Hot Tips for Career Chicks" is aimed at providing practical advice as well as insights into what works and why in the world of business, specifically for women. There are over 200 practical and easy-to-implement tips to develop confidence and control over a career and the direction that it is headed.
Topics include how to develop the skills to negotiate remuneration, get the job you want, prioritize what's important and know when to move on.
Author, Karen Adamedes believes that one of the reasons why women are not adequately represented in the senior ranks of business is a value equation. "When women do not get the money, recognition, promotion or even the feeling of being valued, that they want from their career, or see others achieving, they decide that they are simply not getting a good return on their efforts. Understanding how the business environment works, and how to work within it, is crucial to achieving career satisfaction and making the equation more rewarding.
Karen's career advice has been featured on the pages of major magazines and newspapers and her articles appear regularly in international publications.
The winners of the 2012 Global eBook Awards will be announced in Santa Barbara, California on August 18.
In the meantime Karen is working on another career book for men and women, a quick reference guide for tricky and everyday situations at work and is building an online go-to resource for career development, www.careerchickchat.com
