First Job – Situational Story Telling That Improves Professional Skills by Joyce Jarek

White Letters First Job with red background

Hello readers:

I want to share exciting news about a milestone achieved in my personal and professional life. I recently surpassed a twenty-five-year anniversary in business management serving several corporations in roles that include analytics, contract negotiations, purchasing and operations management. However, the most rewarding experience has been through supervision and mentoring.

I want to share my experiences in such a way that younger professionals may quickly absorb lessons learned through stories about common situations that they are likely encountering right now in the workplace. This fall, my first book First Job: A Personal Career Guide for Graduates will be released through Friesen Press and made available with major carriers like Ingram, Amazon, Kindle and Barnes & Noble as a paperback or ebook.

First Job relays valuable information by introducing four characters Donna, Devon, Kelsey and Jake who have landed jobs in engineering, marketing, and business development. They encounter situations that occur everyday in the business world, and are affected by the actions of colleagues and friends that influence the outcome. It makes suggestions on how to develop skill sets around growing your knowledge base, collaborating with team members, and distinguishing yourself as promotion-worthy. The book is ideal for 19-26 year olds just entering the workforce or have under 3 years of experience. However, managers may also use this book to create professional awareness and encourage discussion about career growth, or as a teaching tool for new supervisors.

Best regards,

Joyce Jarek
