Red-Hot Career Tips

Success is rarely instantaneous, but it is possible. All you need to do is work your charm. Here, tips from Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City.

Make Details Count: 'Just do the job in front of you beyond expectations. One of my first jobs was literally sharpening pencils, and my boss said I was by far the best, so I was noticed.'

Knock Off The Oversharing: 'In the business world, it's not about you. It's much better to ask somebody else questions about themselves. People don't really want to hear about you until you're around 30 and more accomplished.

Research Your World: 'You need to know something beyond whom your friends are dating when you talk to your boss, so gather info about your corporate culture in your spare time.'

Check Your Ego: 'You have to earn other people's respect through hard work.'

Don't Be Afraid To Ask For Help: 'I know there's this idea that older women don't want to help younger women, but that isn't true. Flattery always works because everybody wants to be appreciated for their talent. Send a nice e-mail with a compliment, then ask for advice on how your boss got ahead.'
