A Twenty-Something's Guide to the Business World

by Levit, Alexandra

THEY DON'T TEACH CORPORATE IN COLLEGE has resonated with hundreds of thousands of readers and is currently used as a text in corporations and universities across the country.

Streamlined and made more accessible for the current generation of twenty-somethings, this new edition is for those that want to make a difference right now but lack some of the core skills to make it happen.
Learn how to:
- Make the smartest career move right out of college.
- Establish a strong reputation by encouraging others to like and cooperate with you.
- Navigate your organization's social scene and practice cringe-free networking.
- Master skills that will take you anywhere, including goal setting and self-promotion.
- Combat negativity and cope with difficult personalities.

Updated with fresh research, anecdotes, and resources, the book still maintains the no-nonsense perspective of a wise older sister who doesn't want you to have to learn the hard way.

This book is loaded with solid information designed to demystify the business world.

Review: Fortune

A powerfully insightful resource for aiding next generation leaders as they aspire to break into the corporate world in the face of a most daunting and challenging economy.

Quote: Douglas Conant

An insider's guide to the working world, read this book.

Quote: Ken Blanchard

Levit writes with honesty and a refreshing bluntness about office mysteries that boggle young employees. Sprinkled with bullet points and real-world examples of corporate successes and gaffes, this can be referred to by twenty-somethings (and those who need a refresher) again and again.

Review: PR Week

Too good to be given only to the twenty-somethings. Anyone who's feeling lost and overwhelmed in cubicle country can benefit from reading this eminently practical book.

Quote: Daniel Pink
