Product Description

Working in a rewarding job is one of life's greatest joys. Contributing in a meaningful way to something you care about and being compensated fairly for your efforts generates a wonderful sense of satisfaction and happiness in your life. This book steers young professionals through all parts of the job search process. "From Ramen to Riches: Finding a Job in Your 20s" first guides the reader through a self-assessment to figure out what kind of work really resonates. It then covers in detail all the aspects of a successful search: creating a compelling resume, networking, informational and formal job interviewing, negotiating an offer, and dealing with those first few months on the job. With practical, real-world advice from current and former managers, executives, and other experts, "From Ramen to Riches" provides a roadmap to a more productive and successful job search.
