A savvy handbook for ambitious new graduates and first-time employees who want to market themselves as top performers and get on their employers' fast track, with advice on initial job skills, tasks, and milestones in the first year on the job. Lacking the soft skills necessary to shine in the workplace, bright-eyed college graduates think they are ready to take over the world - but they're left taking over administrative tasks instead. That's where Effective Immediately comes in. Seasoned manager Skip Lineberg and successful young professional Emily Bennington give newbies the skills they need to be perceived - from day one - as top performers. This high-energy guide is organised by career milestones - first tasks, meetings, reports, and so on - because the first time something like this comes up is the time to get it right. With advice on office attire, staying organised, interacting with superiors in order to gain their respect, responding to voicemails and emails, admitting mistakes, and much more, Effective Immediately hold the key to exceeding expectations - and moving up - at a new job.
