Entering the Real World PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Entering the Real World free pdf Entering the Real World is a collection of practical ideas to empower young adults as they enter and adjust to the real world. The ideas are simple, straightforward and easy to adapt- no major life changes are needed (though some could result). Most high schools and colleges still focus primarily on academics and ignore teaching practical skills needed to thrive in the real world. Role models for young adults are often entertainers, Olympic athletes and sports figures, all of whom devote much time to achieve their goals. Self-help media most often teach about major changes that are needed to succeed with a new approach to living. Instead, Entering the Real World offers smaller but powerful ideas that can be applied immediately and successfully to one's life without a "major internal overhaul." Some of the book's more than 140 ideas include how to: *Interview successfully and enter the workforce *Get great reference letters *Think for oneself *Begin building wealth (despite thousands of dollars in student loans) *Manage time effectively *Communicate clearly in business and personal relationships Benefits *Over 140 straightforward, easily usable and adaptable ideas *Save time and money by preventing common mistakes *Shorten the learning curve to adapt to the real world *Get ahead faster *Get a head start over your peers *Touches on aspects of mental illnesses often overlooked or shoveled under the rug Special Features *Many ideas are cross-referenced for easy access *The book is designed in small sections for easy reading on a mobile device *Most sections end with a "Takeaway" and/or a "Take Action!" that, respectively, summarize the section and suggest actions a reader can take to act on the ideas *The "Takeaway" and "Take Action!" segments for each chapter appear at the end of the chapter as a summary Author's website available for: *Download of files referenced in the book *Errata *Interaction among readers to post comments and suggestions *Providing feedback about the book through a feedback page with an option for anonymity
