Everything moves at warp speed when you leave college. Are you ready for the race?
When you start at your first entry-level job, you may be uncertain about how to do it well or how to handle the many new challenges you face. You are not alone. Lauren Berger, a millennial and accomplished spokesperson for her generation, offers sound, practical advice for your debut in the world of work. Her online audience of millennials – particularly young women – will love Berger’s book, which features a strong female slant. However, since she focuses on the special needs and wants of millennials and workplace novices, baby boomer readers may find that her advice and cultural references bypass them – unless their kids are millennials on the cusp of entering the workplace, in which case, they, too, should read on. Berger provides millennials with helpful ideas and tips on how to handle their work and personal lives and how to balance the two. getAbstract recommends her clear, practical, humorous manual especially to the people for whom she wrote it: millennials at the beginning of their careers.
In this summary, you will learn
- What guidelines millennials should follow to get ahead in business and in life,
- How to embellish your personal brand,
- Why millennials must network, and
- How to balance your professional life with your private life.
