Trish says: Now any woman can look, walk & talk like an office worker 
:: how to develop office skills :: how to find, apply for and get any office job.
This book is sincere. It's based on my 30 years of office experience. 
I would feel like a traitor if I suggested anything jolly about finding and keeping an office job in this economy. 
On the other hand, I have seen so many people apply for a job - even a job working for me - and ruin their 
chances before they walk in the door. It's heartbreaking to see people fail to get a job because they
don't know any better. If you read my book, you will know better and your chances will be greatly improved.
