This is how the transition works!
Many young people find it difficult to integrate into working life after successfully completing their studies. Experts speak of a practice shock that hits harder all those who change unprepared and without (external) help from the more free student life into the highly regulated working life.
The differences often start with the dress code and do not stop with the work instructions.
Student and professional life: Two worlds clash!
For these young professionals, the graduate psychologist and trainer Isabelle Pfister has written a very useful guide, which is not only recommended to freshly baked university graduates. On the almost 180 pages it is not only about the important issue of self-management, but also very basic about survival strategies in the many new and unknown worlds of companies and businesses.
Among other things, Pfister gives valuable tips for dealing with colleagues (“colleagues are not always friends…”), for avoiding (negative) stress, for coping with eMail-Flood. And of course, a chapter on the important topic of time management should not be missing.
Practical life coaching for career starters
But it is not just practical tips with which Pfister wants to make life easier for the career starter. It also touches on more fundamental questions such as:
- "What is important to you anyway?"
- "What do you want to achieve?"
- “How do you want to look back on your life as an old person?”.
What I also like about the book is the understanding Pfister meets with the young people at the beginning of their careers.
Almost everyone has difficulty starting
Also top: Numerous quotes from managers and managers on different Company Show that almost everyone had to deal with such teething problems and how to overcome them.
Conclusion: “Get organized” by Isabelle Pfister is a great and valuable book for everyone who is on the threshold from student to professional life. But even those who have been in everyday work for some time will read this book at a profit.
