Understanding what to expect from the first day on the job and how to successfully navigate the workplace environment can help ease a challenging transition. Learning the Ropes, Third Edition tackles the difficult subject of how to fit into a new context, whether at work or at school. The awkward period of figuring out how things work and what is expected of someone in a new situation is less difficult with some know-how. This updated resource helps students overcome the "first-day jitters" and prepares them for some of the realities of work life, including dress codes, organizational hierarchies, coworker conflicts and resolutions, and some basic rights of every employee. True-or-false quizzes and an appendix with helpful Web sites are new additions to this authoritative book.

  • This Is Your Mission
  • Profits
  • The Management
  • Your First Day
  • Dress for Success
  • Realistic Expectations

  • Learning to Go the Extra Mile
  • Dealing with Coworkers
