I was fortunate enough to receive this as an early graduation gift from a friend of mine. I didn¿t realize it until I read this book, but I¿ve felt quite apprehensive about leaving the security of college and starting work. Now, I'm definitely more comfortable with the idea of becoming a working adult and already feel a familiarity with what I¿m about to experience. I would recommend this book to anyone not quite sure what to expect after graduation.

Jason Smith was right, I accepted my job offer and thought 'now what?' Thanks to him, I now know what to do in order to make good decisions for my first real job. He includes practical guidance on issues that I have yet to see anywhere else--how to discover the secret rules, keeping your hassle factor down, an explanation of benefits, what to look for in a mentor, etc. The best part is that he gives this guidance through real life examples, humor, and no condescension. This was the best gift I received to help me get started on the right foot in the working world. I recommend it for anyone moving from campus to work or someone starting a new job where you want to succeed.

Leaving Campus is a practical, well written guide for the new/recent graduate (although anyone would benefit from the advice and wisdom in this book). Anyone can learn from the practical advice learned from the author's years of Human Resource experience. What a great gift for any new/recent graduate or new employee! I highly recommend this book.

A wonderful confidence builder, I felt so much more prepared to enter my first job after reading this book. The author is very insightful and shares many personal experiences about how to build strong communication with your boss and how to find your place in the company culture. As a graduating college senior, I am grateful for having read this book before trying to navigate through the ups and downs of my first job. The chapter on planning a budget and understanding retirement plans was extremely useful, since they don't really teach you that in school. I also appreciated the strategies for creating a balance between your personal and working life, a must-know for anyone who gets easily burned-out! The book is an easy, entertaining read and manages to thoroughly but succinctly present much more useful advice than other workforce guidebooks. I feel like I entered my first job with the wisdom of someone who's been there 30 years.
