Start 2017 off right with this compilation of nine of my favorite stories about how successful women launched their careers. It’s specifically designed for those looking to land that first professional job or still in the early stages of their career.

  • Ilyce Glink – she was launched by getting fired
  • Pernille Spiers-Lopez – failed her way into a successful career in retail
  • Irene Rosenfeld – running Kraft Canada
  • Sally Blount – didn’t like BCG but was so glad she did it – it really launched her
  • Connie Lindsey – launched via sales job – despite absolutely not wanting to be a salesperson
  • Deanie Elsner – launched via iconic CPG brand P&G
  • Betty Hudson – talked her way out of dress shop and into television
  • Charlene Wheeless – “fell into” a career in communication when she left IBM because despite being a highly sought after position it felt like a fate worse than death to her
  • Perry Yeatman – launched twice – first by starting at the very bottom in a small firm and then by going overseas
