In our 20s and 30s, we all struggle with starting our first job, navigating new workplaces, and being successful at work. At the same time, we’re striving to identify who we are, what we want, and how to get it.

Millennials’ Guide to Work helps readers identify what is important to them, how to clarify their values, and how to navigate complex workplaces. I believe we all need to work together to help the youngest members of the workplace be successful. This guide is for Millennials who want to achieve and find success, satisfaction, and respect in their professional lives.

This practical guide contains:

  • Advice on overcoming 60 everyday challenges
  • Strategies for dealing with challenging colleagues
  • Tips for working with challenging bosses
  • A guide to clarifying your values and goals.

Praise for Millennials’ Guide to Work

“The professional world would be a far more constructive, civilized, and efficient place if individuals entering it read Millennials’ Guide to Work. Jennifer Wisdom imparts invaluable information in an entirely forthright and pragmatic manner with no preaching—just a focus on helping Millennials navigate often-challenging workplaces to help their true talents and valuable selves emerge.” —Mary M. Mitchell, president, The Mitchell Organization

“There are certain things that $40k of student debt teaches you, like to never take out student loans for a degree. No matter the loan amount, however, there are things that you’re never actually taught about work that you’re somehow supposed to know. This guide answers a lot of those questions. Dr. Wisdom provides a guiding professional hand in an easily digested guide for even the shortest of attention spans (the Millennial plague) without the condescending tone that we Millennials are used to. Finally, someone believes in us! Save money on tuition — buy this book instead!” —Remy Watts, BS, MPA, BAMF, Actual Millennial (and yes, I’m for hire)

“I wish I had a guide like this when I started my career!  I love how Dr. Wisdom provides actual phrases you can say in response to most every uncomfortable situation. This should be a required gift for every college intern and graduate so that they have it to help them with real-time questions or concerns on-the-job. ” —Dawn Mahan, PMP, international speaker, author, non-profit board chair, founder & CEO of PMOtraining, LLC  

“It seems like every single day there’s a new business book on how to ‘deal with Millennials’ but very rarely do you get information for Millennials on how to ‘deal with everyone else.’ Jennifer’s book changes all of that. Covering a variety of topics that we should have learned in school but were never taught for some reason, Millennials’ Guide to Work is a practical and action-oriented resource for anyone (millennial or otherwise) who wants to land a job, deal with coworkers, or just get better results in the workplace.” —Andrew Tarvin, founder, Humor That Works

“Dr. Wisdom has produced a thoughtful, practical, and easily accessible book for anyone looking to improve their performance in work settings.  Its organization around specific and easy to understand problems with lists of extremely good suggestions for concrete approaches to address them will give readers many, many reasons to keep their copy close to their desks, for they will consult them frequently.  Her experience, sensitivity to the complexities of the modern work place, and extensive knowledge of management and behavior science shine through on every page.”—Richard R. Kilburg, PhD, clinical psychologist and author of Executive Coaching, Executive Wisdom, and Virtuous Leaders

“In Millennials’ Guide to Work, Jennifer Wisdom offers a refreshing roadmap to the most frequently asked questions a Millennial or anyone new to the work force would want to know in an easy to read and easy to digest format. Readers will benefit from the insights and tools Jennifer shares and be able to make immediate application as needed.” —Eddie Turner, The Leadership Excelerator®, Best-Selling Author, and Podcast Host

“In this book, Dr. Wisdom provides a great many effective strategies for navigating the increasingly dynamic world of work, from identifying one’s own values, interests and abilities, to engaging successfully with colleagues, bosses and organizations. As such, this is an invaluable resource for Millennials (or anyone else) looking for a job, for advancement, and/or for reliable ways to thrive in the workplace.” —Philip J. Moore, PhD, Associate Professor of Applied Psychology, The George Washington University

“Dr. Wisdom’s thoughtful, professional advice provides a range of options that will help both your short- and long-term goals. Her tone is encouraging and inclusive, and the enthusiasm with which she approaches these challenges provides a ray of hope. Most obstacles are not insurmountable, and Dr. Wisdom’s options give you the opportunity to step back and figure out what solutions are right for you. I wish that I had a book like this when I started out, and I am so happy that this resource is available for others!” —Valerie Weaver, LCSW, Psychotherapist, Program Administrator, and Millennial
