Palm Beach Gardens, FL, November 28, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- How to Get, Keep and Be Well Paid in a Job is a work readiness rulebook that received a five-star review from the Midwest Book Review, an entity libraries rely on when ordering books for their collections. The author, Jay Goldberg, developed a work readiness certification program called the best in the Country by a member of the National Skills Standard Board in January of 2003.
The book uses real life examples to help illustrate key points, and unlike other work readiness books, explains why management values specific skills and behaviors rather than just listing what employees need to do to be highly-valued in the workplace.
For example, the chapter on ethics discusses Stephen King’s novel The Stand; the Don Imus incident with the Rutgers University Women’s Basketball Team; and music downloads before presenting workplace examples. The book then discusses how to determine whether a behavior is ethical or unethical, what goes into an individual’s decision to act ethically or unethically, and finally the potential consequences of acting unethically in the workplace.
The book is ideal for individuals who are new to the workplace, individuals who want to know what they can do to remain valuable to their employer, individuals who want to know what management expects of them at work and why they expect what they do, and individuals looking for work who want to gain an understanding of the workplace so they can perform very well on interviews.
The book retails for $19.95 and until very recently the best price online for a U.S. retailer was $17.95. However, at the time this press release was written, Amazon.com lists new copies from third-party sellers for as low as $12.99 and barnesandnoble.com (Barnes and Noble) for as low as $13.00.
