Overview

College does not teach you how to be successful in the working world.

There is no course or textbook that explains how to create the fulfilling careers many aspire to.

The Millennial generation is 80 million members strong and each year more than 1.5 million enter the working world with little to no idea of how to succeed.

While companies spend millions of dollars scrambling to learn more about Millennials and adapt their work cultures to fit this generation, there are remarkably few resources dedicated to teaching young professionals the traits and techniques that will help them succeed in an ever-changing and always-challenging corporate environment.

The Young Professional's Guide to the Working World fills this void, offering relevant advice to young professionals seeking to build a strong career foundation. A fellow Millennial, McDaniel draws on personal experiences from the beginning of his own career to illustrate key lessons.

The Young Professional's Guide to the Working World provides important insights on the topics essential to success within the first 5-10 years of any corporate career, including:

  • How to get promoted faster and drive results not matter what your industry or job title
  • The 25 attributes all successful young professionals possess
  • How to avoid being a DOPE (someone who Disses Opportunity, Potential & Earnings)
  • The keys to becoming a STAR in your career (someone who is Savvy, Tenacious, Adaptive & Resourceful)
  • How to create and implement a career blueprint plan, the right way
  • Leveraging mentoring to ensure career success

    This book is great for young professionals who want to build the foundation for a great career. This is a great young author who knows how to connect with millennials that are early in their professional careers, because he has lived what he writes about. I have been a business professional for a major Construction company for almost 20 years and I mentor many young professionals, I will be sure to share this gem with them. I wish I had this book 20 years ago.
