How To Get Any Job: Life Launch and Re-Launch for Everyone Under 30, Donald Asher (Ten Speed Press)
In this second edition, subtitled, “Or how to avoid living in your parents’ basement,” the author argues that virtually any life-goal can be reached from virtually any starting point. The importance is doing the plan as early as possible so you can hit the ground running—either after college or the minute you get canned. Some helpful tips include how to prove you have skills that don’t show up on transcripts, how to get experience if you can’t get a job and, for anyone who isn’t a coed, how to hit restart after you’re stuck in a dead end job.
Whether you’re juggling multiple jobs or one big chaotic one, organization is critical, and Leeds best-selling guidebook is a handy week-by-week guide to eliminate office stress for good. The author recognizes that in today’s world the workplace often becomes our second home —and is equally messy. The tasks help readers to learn how to get out from under the crush of paperwork, take back your space, pack for business travel, and even how to ask for a raise (though this may or not be the best time to do that latter thing).
