“Work is a Whole New World”: Shelagh Foster on Your First Year of Work: The Survival Guide

Your First Year of WorkOn All4Women Shelagh Foster, author of the newly published Your First Year of Work: The Survival Guide, gave some handy tips from the book on work ethics and how to get ahead in your first job.

Foster explains that she wrote the book because “Work is a whole new world” and she has “witnessed countless candidates and new employees battling to get ahead”:

When I wrote Your First Year of Work – A Survival Guide it was aimed predominantly at workplace newbies; those who have no experience of work culture and who need guidance to become fully functional employees.

However, once I start discussing the book with friends and colleagues, many of them said the same thing: ‘Never mind the youngsters: I could do with this book.’
