After reading her book, I can't wait to graduate and get out there and put her practical wisdom to good use! It is a slim volume, but it is PACKED with no-nonsense information.

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.

A lot of idealistic people go into work very motivated and then are sad to find they are often bored, are asked to do boring things, and their effort is not rewarded. They can start stewing about the company or corporate world in general.

This book helps to break it down and show the issues from the managers' perspectives, so that it's clear it's not personal, and people can relax and focus on what's important and not get so offended or demoralized by the way things work.

Really helped me to enjoy my job more and realize that everything might be more ok than I thought, and warn me not to do some things I'd been doing, and to do more of certain things that would actually help me.

A professor of mine used this book in my business law class (I am a returning student) and I bought the book for both my sons who are graduating college this year. It has a wealth of information - it doesn't have to be read like a typical book, but can be used to look up situations to get ideas how to best handle them. Wish I had it years ago!

This is a great resource for anyone entering Corporate America. If you've worked in an organization in a non-professional position and think you know Corporate America--YOU DON'T. One might think the information is 'common sense', but too often we don't use common sense until someone makes the 'light bulb' go off. Alexandra does this beautifully! I highly recommend this book for any new grad. The examples are great and can apply to almost any corporate situation. For example, in my current role, as a new employee, other staff would constantly ask me to do task that was NOT my responsibility. Rather than say, NO, I said, I'm not sure if I handle that, you might want to ask my supervisor! This was GREAT advice! They were clearly trying to take advantage of me because I was new. (I was alarmed because they took me out to lunch, drilled me for information on my background, and asked me the same question 3 times, 3 different ways) Can you imagine what else they would have thrown at me had I said, sure, I'll do it? That might not sound too exciting, but trust me...as a new grad, in your first position, you are soooo eager to please everyone and show that you are a hardworker--you'll find yourself doing your work and everyone else's. Now those same co-workers ask for my help, and not try to insist that it's my job to do it. This way, I have the option of taking on extra work or not. With all that said, go ahead and invest in your corporate career--purchase the book!

This is a MUST READ for all 20 somethings! The advice is excellent and everything I try and teach my students as a career coach! The book is fresh and current with great tips and advice!

most of this book is common sense but it really sums it all up in 1 convenient place. Most person is going to know more then half the topics in the book but the other half can really help you along. I'm 26 and i wish i would have read this when i was in college. Get this for anybody in there senior year of college i highly recommend it. it transcends many degrees and professions.

I've retired and was looking for some words of advice for younger colleagues. I searched a bit for something of value. What I found were books filled with generalities that didn't capture what I thought appropriate for young people in business today. I happened across this book and, attracted by the title, gave it a read. It was just the thing. Instead of giving long speeches, I give questioning young professionals a copy with the counsel "read it".

Managers searching to work with GenY employees would greatly benefit from reading this book. Why? Because it helps them bridge the gap and understand how Gen Y thinks. GenY wants two things: They want to be productive, and they want to succeed. Some traditionalist and baby boomers have a hard time understanding why Gen Y needs tools like a Blackberry to be productive. GenY wants these tools because they grew up with them. This is the generation that grew up IM'ing, texting, e-mailing, etc. They are most productive with these types of tools, and will blow your minds with their accomplishments if you provide them with what they need. Gen Y wants to feel useful and productive - you need to challenge them and their abilities and give them room to prove themselves.
I bought this book for my little sister, who is a junior in college. Before I gave it to her, I started to thumb through it...then ended up reading the whole thing! Even though I'm in my late twenties, I found a lot of the information to be helpful in terms of my career and my husband's. In fact, he was interviewing for a new job while I read the book, so we used it for guidelines throughout the process. I'm delighted to say...HE GOT THE JOB! Thanks, Alexandra!
