On Our Bookshelf: Save The Assistants

We recently read Save The Assistants by Lilit Marcus and fell in love with this practical guide for young professionals.

Lilit started SaveTheAssistants.com as a destination for young men and women just getting started at their first jobs or internships. It turned into a popular website know for its sound advice and hilarious workplace anecdotes so it is little surprise that the book is just as engaging as the original blog.

Alexandra Levit author of They Don’t Teach Corporate in College has this to say about the book.

“Lilit Marcus has written perhaps the only career book that’s so fun it can actually double as a beach read. Chock full of pop culture references and caricatures that will make you laugh out loud, Save the Assistants also gets down to business with its no-nonsense advice for making the best of your entry-level tenure. Marcus’ popular online community—and now her book of the same name—has transformed being an assistant into an exclusive rite of passage.”  

Obviously we spend a lot of time thinking about working women here at Ann Taylor. So we were thrilled to send Lilit a few outfits to help her look her best for her book tour. She picked out a striped shirts as well as one of our ever popular shirt dresses.

With her advice and a great outfit we are confident any ambitious young woman can achieve her professional goals.
