During the 2012�13 school year, America�s colleges and universities are expected to award 1.8 million bachelor's degrees, sending almost two million fresh faces into the workforce.

Nobody Told

Overview

During the 2012�13 school year, America�s colleges and universities are expected to award 1.8 million bachelor's degrees, sending almost two million fresh faces into the workforce. While those schools may have taught this army of potential office drones about critical thinking and problem solving, they didn�t prepare them for life after college.

Nobody Told Me� The Cynic�s Guide for New Employees picks up where our institutions of higher learning leave off � readying these poor unfortunate souls to learn the hard lessons of life in the office.

With biting cynicism honed by years in the trenches of the cubicle wars, Jeffrey Tharp presents a slightly twisted perspective on work, philosophy, and life that perfectly captures the smoke and mirrors environment of the average office job. It�s a must read for graduates, bureaucrats, and anyone who spends their day in a cube.
