Synopsis

Career Skills Library Learning the Ropes by Ferguson Publishing

Understanding what to expect from the first day on the job and how to successfully navigate the workplace environment can help ease a challenging transition. Learning the Ropes, Third Edition tackles the difficult subject of how to fit into a new context, whether at work or at school. The awkward period of figuring out how things work and what is expected of someone in a new situation is less difficult with some know-how. This updated resource helps students overcome the 'first-day jitters' and prepares them for some of the realities of work life, including dress codes, organizational hierarchies, coworker conflicts and resolutions, and some basic rights of every employee. True-or-false quizzes and an appendix with helpful Web sites are new additions to this authoritative book. The chapters include: This Is Your Mission; Profits; The Management; Your First Day; Dress for Success; Realistic Expectations; The Daily Grind; Learning to Go the Extra Mile; Dealing with Coworkers; Your Personal Rights as an Employee; Your Financial Rights as an Employee; Resolving Problems; Asking for a Raise; and, When to Move On.
