I received this book courtesy of Mrs. Marie for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Overview: Mrs. Marie has had years of experience in the business world, everything from an entry position to that of a supervisor. I’d agree that she can help many with their first jobs. So, let’s follow “Katie,” our avatar into the world of cubicles, bosses, and coworkers.
Story Telling: Mrs. Marie has used humor, as will a few gentle admonishments to cultivate a professional attitude, for the new employee.
Likes: I appreciate the fact that Mrs. Marie urges the new employee to not sink towards the use of profanity at work. Mostly, I believe, for the unprofessional shine it casts upon the user. Also, Mrs. Marie explains the difference between true volunteering and other styles of volunteering in regards to Human Resources.
Dislikes: My only problem with this book is the fact that I think both men and women could use this advice. Even though it’s a woman’s guide, men, too, can benefit from it.
Favorite Scene: My favorite part would be each time the author has to remind Katie that life isn’t fair.
Conclusion: This is a fun, entertaining, and informative read. Anyone heading into the job circuit should read this first.
