I work from home as a medical consultant. According to The Betches, I must be a pathetic loser who never gets any work done. They don't know me at all! These millenial women sure have an "interesting" way of looking at things and honestly, that's why I read it. As a middle-aged woman, I am curious to see how younger generations look at the world. Much of the advice in this often comedic book is obvious, other bits and pieces a bit off the rails. For example, I strongly discourage women from swip ...more

This is a great book for someone starting out in their career. Funny and useful advice!

When’s Happy Hour? Is filled with timely advice in the modern workplace. I found myself laughing and cringing when I read this book. I think young professionals will enjoy this book and may even recognize some situations they have already been navigating.

I know I'm not the target audience for this book. I'm not a Millennial and I'm not just out of college.
I think this book has some good advice for young women just leaving college. I'm sure the casual tone will appeal to Millennials and Gen Z. It just seemed a bit much for me. Too many references to the Bachelor and Vanderpump Rules for me. The authors have two best selling books already so there must be a market for this type of book. I did appreciate the chapter on harrassment and I found myse

In the introduction, the authors claim that this book may not be for everyone. I actually liked the introduction and the first few chapters, but I came to recognize myself as the "not for everyone" reader as the book progressed. While there was a great deal of justification for self-permission for informal language "bros" would get away with, the tone did not change throughout the book. Some nuggets of wisdom were included here in terms of how to present self, prepare for interviews, and pace ca ...more

I first heard of the Betches through one of their viral videos a co-worker sent me, which lead me to this book. This book is laid out in a clear, linear way, covering how to write a resume, nail an interview, deal with bosses, etc. The resume building and interview advice wasn't really relevant to me, but this book would be great for the key demographic - which would be a young woman who's a recent grad of college.

That said, I did find a lot of helpful information in this, especially in the sect

It was...okay. Not their best work.

I personally found the humor in their previous books much better. This book lacks in humor. Which I understand, this is a book about jobs. Which is a serious topic. But it's also a book written my The Betches, there are definitely ways they could have inserted more humor into the book.

I would also say that the advice in this book is more focused towards the college girl audience, not the already working females. Most of the advice is fairly useless if you've a

This would be a great graduation gift for a sorority girl. I don’t mean that in a derogatory way—I read it as a 26-year-old who has been in the “real world” for over four years now, and as someone who feels like they have a relatively solid sense of direction and success in life, there just wasn’t much in here that could help me at this point in my life. That said, the Betches are always hilarious and never fail to give great advice in a relatable way, which in itself makes the book worth pickin ...more

Definitely speaks more to women that are just entering the workforce, than women who have been working for some time. I find the book’s voice a little too juvenile and lacking in actual in-depth advice. Perhaps, being a working 40 year old woman colors my judgement, but some of these pointers just seem incredibly basic and common sense. If people need to be told that flipping out on your boss and sleeping with random coworkers is a bad idea, the problem is a lot worse than we think!

The millennial woman's guide to the work force. A quick, easy read I think this book would be good for women just starting out in their careers or trying to figure out how to navigate the workforce post college. Good advice and honest truth telling that as a manager I would love for people to know. I also found good advice for myself but mostly it was a snarky entertaining read in the same style as their blog/instagram account.

I loved this book. It is funny but at the same time it is very informative. The Betches don't pull their punches with the thought provoking questions. The book gives the reader a kick in the backside in the reality of job hunting or just job keeping.

This book is designed for millennials and people just starting out in their careers. I am not in this category, but with that being said, there was still some information that I found useful. The book is a quick, easy read with a rather humorous writing style.
Pam Zeiler
It’s witty, not something that was very useful to as I’ve been in the work force a while but some chapters were good info. Will totally pass on to my sister though may give her some insight pre college with a dab of humor.

These betches condense a lot of common sense biz wisdom into an enjoyable format. It’s written for a millennial audience. I didn’t learn anything new, but didn’t expect I would.

This book is definitely geared towards women fresh out of college or starting their careers, but I learned some useful tips.

It’s sad that books like this need to exist for women, but at least it’s funny!

Fast, informational, and funny read. I enjoyed the information in this book and feel like it was very relevant.

Relatable, hilarious, and a perfect style of writing- as always!

Mildly funny but suited towards a very specific group of readers. If you’re not a senior in college or in the corporate world, this book isn’t gong to do much for you.
Nov 20, 2018 rated it it was amazing
Refreshing and informational. It made me less scared to start planning for my future.
I love them so I had to read it but I really didn’t need any advice in the book. If I was maybe fresh out of college than maybe.

This one was kind of on the line for me. Equal amounts of what I liked, versus what I didn't like. A bit of a let down for me, and I was really looking forward to this. It just didn't speak to me all the way. That being said, I still know some people who would fully enjoy this.

The Betches do an amazing job making a career book actually enjoyable to read. I originally bought this book because I'm a fan of the Betches and wanted to read their humorous writing, but I ended up getting a lot more insight on the working world. The Betches started their company on their own in college and brought it up to be a huge media company. More than just being funny people, these three women are truly an inspiration. They share their stories, their struggles and their advice in hopes ...more

It's a very direct book. I would recommend it to students fresh out of college. I liked it though, recognized myself in some of the situations :)) A lot of advise I wish I had when I was looking for a job.
