Synopsis

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. The chapters include: This Is Your Mission; Profits; The Management; Your First Day; Dress for Success; Realistic Expectations; The Daily Grind; Learning to Go the Extra Mile; Dealing with Coworkers; Your Personal Rights as an Employee; Your Financial Rights as an Employee; Resolving Problems; Asking for a Raise; and, When to Move On.
