You’re sitting in your cube, no windows in sight. You drive to and from work in the dark. You’re exposed to new personalities and processes every day. The person who was supposed to train you keeps saying she’ll get to it “tomorrow.” You’re adrift in a sea of crumpled receipts and to-do lists. Career expert and entrepreneur Lauren Berger feels your pain. She’s been there. She was you.
It’s an interesting time for young people in the workplace. They can’t go to their parents for job advice because the rules aren’t the same as they’ve been in the past. Most career guides out there are either aimed at older generations or are stodgy, nuts-and-bolts rule books. In WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD, Lauren Berger has come to the rescue. She aims to arm this generation with the tools needed to succeed in the workplace.
In this post- economic crisis, millenials need to be bold, take risks, and understand their value in the workplace. She shows you how to think of your job as a link that will eventually connect you to the opportunity of our dreams. It’s time to get comfortable getting uncomfortable. The book covers anything and everything related to that first on-the-job experience, including how to:
o Think about “The Big Picture”
o Deal with rejection at work.
o Effectively manage your time at your job.
o Navigate “sticky situations” in the office and communicate with different personality types
o Embrace entrepreneurship regardless of position, rank, or title.
o Organize your financial situation and personal life.
o How to get promoted and (one day) take your boss’ job!
