Wilson Simmons III is the owner and manager of International Fundraising, Inc.From Booklist:
Simmons offers tips and techniques geared to helping blacks enter the higher levels of the corporate world. "This book," he insists, "will tell you as African Americans how to get in the door, and what to expect once you step across the threshold." He then proceeds to make good on his word. Simmons begins with 10 important steps for achieving a productive interview (emphasizing that "there are not shortcuts" ), including such topics as researching the company with which you're interviewing, pre-interview relaxation techniques, appropriate dress, and the use of thank-you notes. An annotated listing of the 25 best companies for blacks to work for is followed by discussions centering on such areas as opportunities in sports franchises, understanding the corporate culture of a company once you're working there (particularly how to deal with racist issues), and ways to move up the ladder. Clear, concise, helpful. Brad Hooper
