Career Fair For Women
By  Barbara Bordenave

Tory Johnson is an internationally recognized employment expert who, through her position as Workplace Contributor on ABC's Good Morning America, reaches millions of television viewers each month. But that's not the only hat that Johnson wears; she is also the founder and CEO of Women for Hire, a company that promotes job opportunities for women. On top of these successes, she is also a published author with several books behind her.

Johnson began writing books for a few reasons. As she explains it, "I'd give speeches and people would ask for copies of them, which I didn't have since much of it was from my head. I'd give advice in coaching sessions and people would ask for the advice in written form. Following my TV appearances, I'd receive email after email from people asking where they could buy my books, even though I didn't have any. It became so apparent that there was a market for books on women's career advancement. While a lot of work goes into researching and writing each one, it is also rewarding when the finished product helps someone accomplish her goals."  

Johnson's books include the following titles:

  • Women For Hire: The Ultimate Guide To Getting A Job
    This book gives specific advice to women seeking employment, such as tips on networking, making a good impression, submitting a resume, and being prepared for the interview process. Valuable tips on obtaining a good salary and the best possible benefits at work are also explained.
  • Women For Hire's Get-Ahead Guide To Career Success
    A guide for professionals at every level, this title teaches networking skills and presents strategies for advancing one’s career, including rules of etiquette, secrets to success and how to enjoy that success once it’s been achieved, as well as the importance of being pro-active. Case studies of professionals who knew what they wanted and went on to achieve success are also included in the book.
  • Take This Book To Work: How To Ask For (And Get) Money, Fulfillment, And Advancement
    Johnson's third book encourages job seekers to ask essential questions while avoiding particular questions, and is unique in its treatment of topics concerning women in the workplace, women seeking a career, and women who have already achieved professional success.

Will Work From Home is to be released from Penguin Putnam in January 2008, this book will explore money-making opportunities for the stay-home professional.

In addition to her publishing and media activities, Johnson also puts on a series of career fairs, at which she is readily accessible.

Below are the Spring 2008 dates for the Women for Hire Career Expos, where, if you’re lucky, you might just be able to convince her to sign your copy of Take This Book To Work!

Traffic Swarm For Writers

Hottest Books This Month!

Whose Books Are Turning Into Movies?
Bald Ego
Mouse Over To Pause

Writer’s Block
The path to inspiration starts
Upon the trails we’ve known;
Each writer’s block is not a rock,
But just a stepping stone.

Poetry Is Not
Penned to the page
Waiting for us to admire.
It is only a lonely thought
Caught by tears on fire.

Silent Echoes
A quiet rhyme upon a page
Is what a poet gives;
Some gentle words whispered in trust
To see if memory lives.

Bard From Deadlines
What makes a poem finally work
Is not the time it takes;
It’s how the poet used the muse
To prophet from mistakes.

Be Mused
The art and craft of poetry
Are not so far apart;
The craft comes from the cunning,
The rest comes from the heart.

Fine Vintage
Don’t plant your poem on the page
As though you’re hanging drapes;
It’s shape and flow should come and grow
Like wild summer grapes.

Getting It Write
Writers write what they know best,
Their passions, fears, and dreams;
Writers rarely write about
What other call their “themes.”

Double Vision
A writer’s life is paradox,
It’s more than what it seems;
We write of our reality,
The one inside our dreams.

The echo of a promise,
The thunder of a sigh,
The music of a memory,
A child asking why.

Letter Perfect
Twenty six symbols arranged on a page
Can send a soul to heaven or torment it with rage,
Can free a fragile world or hold it in its net--
The power and the magic of the mighty alphabet.

The Write of Passage
The jump from writing just for fun
To getting paid for it
Begins when you first realize
You know you’ll never quit.

It is not the magic of his wings
That sets us free from our bond.
It is the muse within ourselves
That lets our words lift us beyond.

Photo Poet
Consider your mind the darkroom,
Consider your life the lens,
Consider your eye the camera
On whose focus the poem depends.

Rising Moon
A poem is a rising moon
Shining on the sea,
An afterglow of all we know,
Of all we hope to be.

Star Light
Writing a poem,
Reaching a star,
In making good art
We find who we are.

Spider Web
A poem is a spider web
Spun with words of wonder,
Woven lace held in place
By whispers made of thunder.

The final draft upon the screen,
At last my poem’s through;
A verse of only four short lines--
I rewrote twenty-two!
