They Don't Teach Corporate in College has resonated with tens of thousands of readers and is currently used as a text in corporations and universities across the country. This new and updated edition reflects the unique needs and challenges of current twenty-somethings, who want to make a difference right now but lack some of the core skills to make it happen. It incorporates fresh tips for building your transferable skillset, networking and enhancing your productivity in an increasingly digital world, and becoming an effective leader.

Chock full of personal anecdotes and written from the perspective of a wise older sister who doesn't want you to learn the hard way, They Don't Teach Corporate in College includes no-nonsense advice for:

  • Making the smartest career move right out of college.
  • Landing the job of your dreams by avoiding the black hole of HR.
  • Establishing a strong reputation by encouraging others to like and cooperate with you.
  • Navigating your organization's social scene and practicing cringe-free networking.
  • Mastering skills that will take you anywhere, such as goal-setting and self-promotion.
  • Combating negativity and coping with difficult personalities.

    Review:

    "A powerfully insightful resource for aiding next generation leaders as they aspire to break into the corporate world in the face of a most daunting and challenging economy."
    --Douglas R. Conant, Chairman of Avon Products and New York Time Best-selling author of TouchPoints

    "I have grown up in my career with this book. When I started out, it was my workplace bible and years later, I make sure all of our new hires have copies. Truly a Millennial-whisperer, Alexandra Levit speaks the language of the future leaders of corporate America and her work is essential in our efforts to be a top-notch company at which to launch a fulfilling career."
    --Brad Gorman, Manager, Whirlpool Corporation

    "They Don't Teach Corporate in College is too good to be given only to the twenty-somethings. Anyone who's feeling lost and overwhelmed in cubicle country can benefit from reading this eminently practical book."
    --Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and To Sell is Human

    "This insightful and essential guide to mastering the politics of corporate America should be required reading for every college graduate."
    --James A. Boyle, president, College Parents of America

    "This book is loaded with solid information designed to demystify the business world, including a short, to-the-point glossary of office lingo and a terrific chapter on how to make a long-term career plan."
    --Anne Fisher, Fortune

    "If you're looking for a guide to ease the transition from flip-flops to wingtips, a fine choice is They Don't Teach Corporate in College. Alexandra Levit does a great job of attaching assumptions that high-achieving college grads drag into the workplace with them."
    --Mary Ellen Slayter, The Washington Post

    "Whether you're having a quarter-life crisis or if you just want an insider's guide to the working world, read this book."
    --Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Entrepreneur

    "This book is a must-read for new entrants in the work force and useful even to the more experienced professional."
    --Caroline Ceniza-Levine, National Association for Colleges and Employers

    "After four years of jeans and baseball caps and three hours of class a day, workforce newbies need a boot camp like this to face up to the rigors of the working week."
    --Abby Wilner, coauthor of Quarterlife Crisis

    "Ms. Levit teaches newbies such practicalities as making a memorable first impression, networking without cringing, coping with difficult personalities, and learning to be an effective boss. The book is easy to read and loaded with common-sense techniques."
    --Steve Powers, The Dallas Morning News
