After working 25 years in various industries, supervising and mentoring numerous of young professional men and women, E. Marie was inspired to write a book that prepares entry level employees for the world of work.
This career guidance book addresses a variety of subject matters including: project management, team work, managing your boss, performance evaluations, sexual harassment, difficult coworkers and networking.
It is an easy to read guidance book with two main characters. One of the fictional characters is a female, a recent college graduate, who is preparing to enter the workforce. The other character is the narrator, who gives the new employee straight to the point advice –with a touch of humor- on how to handle or avoid potential work related issues.
There are funny scenarios and illustrations scattered throughout the book. An index is included to locate specific subject matter.
E. Marie is hopeful that upon reading her book, readers will get a heads-up on what to expect during the first year of employment while obtaining some tips on how to avoid first job “hiccups” and smoothly move up the ladder.
