How to Succeed in Business by Really Trying

Congratulations! You Got the Job! Now What? Candidates for jobs spend so much time and effort on getting the job, that precious little thought is given to how to succeed on the job. That lack of preparation for real world situations may account in part for the surprisingly high attrition rate during the first year of employment.  The webinar will cover: getting through the first difficult three months in a new job, problems faced during the course of a career and how to deal with them, and  strategies that you can utilize to proactively manage your career to make your job more satisfying, move up within your company or  move on to greener pastures.  Whether you are just getting into the workforce or are a veteran employee dissatisfied with your present job or career track, this webinar will provide you great ideas to shake things up.
