A Technologist's Guide to Career Advancement is a book that can help anyone in IT advance in their career. It can be extremely daunting to do things like ask for a raise or request the promotion that you rightly deserve. The single goal of this book is to give you the advice and techniques that will lead directly to advancement in your IT career. The vast majority of the advice and techniques in this book come directly from the author's own extensive IT experience.  Mr. Schneider has had the good fortune during his 20+ year career of going from a C programmer at a small company, to the Vice President of Software Development at a Fortune 100 company and learning a lot along the way.

The book covers many important things, including how to effectively communicate with your management, peers, and customers.  It details the techniques you need to become the star IT person, whether you are a software developer, tester, project manager, dba, support professional, network engineer, or whatever your role is in information technology.  It covers how to prepare for your review (to get a promotion), and how to react appropriately in times of crisis. A Technologist's Guide to Career Advancement will help you move to the next level in your IT career.
