HASH(0xa4bc49b4) out of 5 stars Get ready for a life-altering education! Oct. 15 2004
By Yelda Basar Moers - Published on
Format: Paperback
After leaving my job, I was disillusioned about the direction of my career in Corporate America until I picked up and read Levit's book. She provides a voice of reason and a voice of wisdom as she guides you through every stage of the corporate game to assure your own personal fulfillment and success. Levit gives the reader confidence and a new outlook because she does not just provide comforting words. She elucidates her point with concrete examples. With the "Take Home Points" section at the end of each chapter, she makes sure that she has drilled in the mind of her reader the key lessons to each chapter. She demystifies Corporate America as she decodes the lingo, reveals insider secrets and strategies to overcome the common obstacles all face, and provides tools to understand the psychology of the workplace. Chapters such as "The Purposeful Workday," which deals with time management, procrastination and organization, and "People Management," which tackles dealing with difficult people and managing relationships with coworkers, are a must read for anyone in any work environment. Stressed out? Consult Levit's chapter "Check Your Attitude at the Door" where she armors you with ways to combat negativity, anger, worry and stress to come out victorious!

This book is not a one-time read. I predict that readers all across the country will bring it to work as a reference guide.

HASH(0xa4bc4a08) out of 5 stars They Do Teach Corporate in College April 10 2007
By M. Sakin - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a College Professor and I have been using "They Don't Teach Corporate in College" as a supplement to my "Supervisory Mangement" Class. Alexandra Levit is right on the mark with this book. The students have really enjoyed reading this book and have learned so much from it. I have incorporated this book into my class discussions and the students will be more prepared for the corporate world because of it!

HASH(0xa4b9fe88) out of 5 stars Pleased Sept. 26 2004
By Richard Golden - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was so pleased with Alexandra Levit's guide to the business world that I had to express my feelings. It made me see my role as a new employee in a new way. I especially liked the chapter on People Management. I thought that would be for executives or managers and that new people like me were the managed ones. I didn't realize the ways that I could manage THEM. Thanks.

HASH(0xa4bc4804) out of 5 stars A MUST have for anyone entering Corporate America April 8 2006
By Win Win - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great resource for anyone entering Corporate America. If you've worked in an organization in a non-professional position and think you know Corporate America--YOU DON'T. One might think the information is 'common sense', but too often we don't use common sense until someone makes the 'light bulb' go off. Alexandra does this beautifully! I highly recommend this book for any new grad. The examples are great and can apply to almost any corporate situation. For example, in my current role, as a new employee, other staff would constantly ask me to do task that was NOT my responsibility. Rather than say, NO, I said, I'm not sure if I handle that, you might want to ask my supervisor! This was GREAT advice! They were clearly trying to take advantage of me because I was new. (I was alarmed because they took me out to lunch, drilled me for information on my background, and asked me the same question 3 times, 3 different ways) Can you imagine what else they would have thrown at me had I said, sure, I'll do it? That might not sound too exciting, but trust a new grad, in your first position, you are soooo eager to please everyone and show that you are a hardworker--you'll find yourself doing your work and everyone else's. Now those same co-workers ask for my help, and not try to insist that it's my job to do it. This way, I have the option of taking on extra work or not. With all that said, go ahead and invest in your corporate career--purchase the book!

HASH(0xa4ba5c6c) out of 5 stars They don't Teach Corporate in College: A twenty-something's guide to the business world April 6 2006
By JRM - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book came along at just the right time for me. I have recently joined the Americorps straight from college and have found it difficult to adjust to the business world. I was so confused because I was super smart in college and graduated at the top of my class. Then I started in the professional

world and all of the sudden I didn't know how to do anything. I was so used to doing my work and then getting it reviewed and receiving input before turning out the final product. Starting work was a shock. This book describes the exact tools you need to adjust and how to smoothly transition into the professional world after college. I would recommend it to anyone who is experiencing these types of feelings.
