Entering the workplace for the first time can be exciting and scary at the same time. There are many challenges - meeting new people, trying to fit in and impress your manager and trying to do your best in your work.

It can be a frightening experience, especially the bigger the company you work for, or the higher the expectations from family and friends.

This book addresses one of the biggest problems in the workplace – communication – with your colleagues, on the phone and in writing; what to wear, the job market and how to make the most of your skills so you can advance in your career.

Other tips include including seven essential practices in the workplace, phone etiquette and email and Internet usage.

It is a must-have for all new entrants to the workplace and makes a great gift to fresh graduates.

The foreword was written by Professor Jonathan Jansen, rector of Free State University, one of the most notable academics who realises that new graduates are underprepared for the workplace.
