What's It Like to Be a Female Working in the Pentagon?

We’re hosting our August book club chat TODAY, Aug. 25 LIVE on Facebook - www.facebook.com/clearancejobs, 4 PM ET! Join us as we discuss The Heart of War: Misadventures in the Pentagon with author Kathleen McInnis. McInnis is writing from the heart - literally - she knows what it’s like to be a female in the national security field. Anyone who has worked in the Pentagon will find it to be a walk down memory lane. Those who haven’t will find it’s a worthy introduction. She discusses topics almost any professional is familiar with - how to deal with a toxic boss, what it’s like to find yourself in a job that is not at all what you envisioned, and that unique experience of being a female operating in a male-dominated field.

If you’re a female working in this industry, what are your tips? What unique challenges have you faced, and how did you overcome them? I’ll be back to share some of McInnis’ thoughts!
