What people are saying about First Generation

This is a cleverly written companion for final year students, fresh graduates and those seeking to rise in their chosen professions. His practical tips are not spun from fictional imagery but from blood and sweat with unforgettable consequences (good and bad) to show.

From the pitfalls to avoid in a new market, to managing a culture shift, dealing with generational gaps, getting your first job, identifying opportunities, First Generation will remain a perfect manual for those starting a career in any field, or seeking a new direction for an existing one.

First Generation is a book for everyone starting out as a fresh graduate! In fact, it's not your regular book, it's a guide; a clearly thought out action plan to help you navigate the murky world of after-school and achieve success faster. The lessons in this book will remain relevant for years.
