GET HIRED AND GO: THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO GETTING A JOB AND DOING IT RIGHT - DOING THE JOB: STARTING OUT AND THE DAILY GRIND

"My first day, my mind was reeling." "I didn't want to make any mistakes." "I was worried I wouldn't be able to do the job."

Topics include the typical paperwork of the first day, such as tax and health insurance forms; the need to completely understand the employer's policies on vacation, sick time, retirement funds, and other benefits; and the equally important need to grasp legal concepts of employee rights, sexual harassment, and workplace safety.
