 Savvy Strategies to Get In, Get Ahead, and Rise to the top by Aaron McDaniels

 

Want to put your best foot forward when you enter the working world? Aaron McDaniel's got you covered.


In this book, McDaniel gives you all the information about being a young professional in
the workplace that your textbooks and courses couldn't. The working world is a constantly
changing and challenging environment, but you can learn the skills necessary to make yourself stand out in the early years of your working career.

McDaniel draws on his personal experiences as a millennial in the beginning of his career, as well as his successes as an corporate manager, entrepreneur, public speaker, and community leader to provide sound advice and techniques about navigating and getting them most out of the working world early on.


In his book, he shares a variety of insights and covers topics including:

  • How to get promoted faster and drive results (no matter what your industry or job title!)
  • The 25 attributes all successful young professionals possess.
  • How to avoid being a DOPE (someone who Disses Opportunity, Potential & Earnings).
  • The keys to becoming a STAR in your career (someone who is Savvy, Tenacious, Adaptive & Resourceful).
  • How to create and implement a career blueprint plan, the right way.
  • Leveraging mentoring to ensure career success.
