Your First Job
Most of us know someone who’s just starting out in the world of work, and while school, college or university can help prepare them to get that job, it can be more difficult to prepare them for the practicalities of what it takes to make a success of that first position.
Your First Job is a practical guide to making a success of your first year at work.
Written in an accessible style, Your First Job ‘tells it like it is’ covering everything from making that right first impression, to learning how to say No so as to manage your time.
As author Mark Blayney puts it: ‘They say you learn by your mistakes. Well I’ve made plenty of them so now others don’t have to.’
Having had a career in business rescue, turnaround and transformation within professional firms, industry, and now as the founder of a specialist private equity firm, Mark Blayney is the author of a range of guides for business directors and owners on growing and realising business value.
Your First Job is his first book for new joiners rather than their bosses.
