Publisher's Summary

Expanded and updated exclusively for graduates just entering the workforce, this extraordinary edition of Lean In includes a letter to graduates from Sheryl Sandberg and six additional chapters from experts offering advice on finding and getting the most out of a first job; résumé writing; best interviewing practices; negotiating your salary; listening to your inner voice; owning who you are; and leaning in for millennial men.
In 2013, Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In became a massive cultural phenomenon and its title became an instant catchphrase for empowering women. The book soared to the top of best seller lists both nationally and internationally, igniting global conversations about women and ambition. Sandberg packed theaters, dominated op-ed pages, appeared on every major television show and on the cover of Time magazine, and sparked ferocious debate about women and leadership. Now, this enhanced edition provides the entire text of the original book updated with more recent statistics and features a passionate letter from Sandberg encouraging graduates to find and commit to work they love. A combination of inspiration and practical advice, this new edition will speak directly to graduates and, like the original, will change lives.

What did you like best about Lean In for Graduates? What did you like least?

Lean In was awesome, Lean In for Graduates is basically the same, so if you read one, you really don't need to read the other

Inspiring for the Drive to Work

What does Elisa Donovan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her warm voice, personal stories, and painting the picture really pulled me into the narrative. This book was definitely a pick-me-up during my commute to a less than stellar internship. One particular morning when I was listening to this book during my commute, I was thinking about how I was gonna appropriately handle the privileged white male at work who was always stealing my chair, trashing my desk, and just not offering me the same respect he would likely give to a male colleague. The book really helped me revisit my aspirations that were so easy to fall away from at a soul-crushing job. I'm at another place now, but my professional development is still a work in progress. I think this book is a good one to read more than once at different points in the career, because some of the chapter topics that don't apply today could easily apply a few months or years from now.
