About the Book

After picking up trash for a dollar an hour, working in an auto store, a bookstore, a coal mine and spending time as a process engineer, draftsman, and landscaper, you learn how to succeed in the workplace.

Those are just a handful of the jobs that Eric Hinrichs has worked over the years, and he walks you through how to navigate career challenges in this guide to surviving and thriving in the professional world. Learn how to:

• make a great first impression with co-workers

and supervisors;

• improve relationships with difficult colleagues

and clients;

• boost your chances of earning a promotion; and

• avoid common mistakes.

He also highlights why we must sometimes change our attitudes, which can be hard. The perception of who we are in the eyes of others is largely based on our own beliefs, the ways we interact with others, the ways we approach our jobs, and how we feel about ourselves.

Maximize career opportunities, improve your chances for advancement, earn more money, and enjoy your work more with the lessons in Perceptions and Expectations.
