The Skills: From First Job to Dream Job--What Every Woman Needs to Know

By Mishal Husain

Acclaimed BBC anchor, Mishal Husain, inspires, champions, and encourages women to make their ambitions a reality by focusing on practical skills they can use throughout their careers, whether they are new graduates, working mothers, re-entering the workforce, or simply seeking a career change.

When women are offered new opportunities, they often hesitate because of doubt--doubt that they are good enough or have the abilities to succeed. Mishal Husain has reached the pinnacle of her field, yet the British news presenter almost didn't take her dream job because of doubt, and it took three years before she felt truly comfortable in her position. While men focus on advancement, women feel pressured to prove themselves. "It is clear that we need some better ideas about how more women can advance to levels comparable with men," Husain writes. The Skills offers insight, practical knowledge, and encouragement to help women thrive.

Husain begins with a frank overview of where women are socially and professional today, and identifies the factors that influence how others perceive us--and how we think about ourselves. Drawing on her own experience and knowledge, along with interviews with experts and inspirational figures from Martha Lane Fox to Malala Yousafzai, The Skills explains:

  • How to present yourself to maximum effect, in person and online
  • How to prepare for big moments and plan for long-term goals
  • How to gain confidence and authority
  • How to use your voice and body language effectively
  • How to navigate the ups and downs of a long working life, from engineering quick wins to building resilience

Wise, down-to-earth, and filled with vital advice, The Skills guides women in honing the abilities they need to thrive in whatever field they choose.
