The second edition (2012) of the popular career advice book, From Graduation To Corporation, is a comprehensive guide to success in the workplace and is specifically tailored to college students and recent college graduates. It is an invitation to the "Millennials" (Generation Y) to go inside the head of a corporate veteran. By examining the thought processes of a senior executive and learning from his experiences, recent college graduates can be better prepared to narrow the gap between their expectations and the expectations of their supervisors.
This edition contains additional information on job search websites, social networking websites, college career centers, career fairs, dining etiquette, and the different generations in the workplace. Other key areas to career success include tips on resumes/cover letters, networking, interviewing, dealing with difficult people, dating at work, how to act in meetings, dress codes, how to stay organized, how to ask for a promotion/raise, Internet/email/telephone etiquette, and Andy's 73 "Corporate Commandments."
What makes this book unique is that the author not only gives us his refreshingly honest account of his climb up the corporate ladder, but also discusses his fall from the top rungs. After working for the same two bosses in the same department of a major television and motion picture studio for over twenty years, Andy Teach found himself on the unemployment line. Find out what he did right and what he did wrong so that you can reach the top rungs of the corporate ladder . . . and stay there!
