Description

Help Wanted is a collection of candid first-person accounts by young people from across the nation, who talk about their first forays into the real world of work. The Chicago Tribune called author Sydney Lewis "the legitimate heir to Studs Terkel," and Terkel himself said, "Sydney Lewis is a natural to do this book. She's on the same wavelength as the young people recounting their first jobs. In its honesty and innocence, it's a strongly moving as well as revealing work."

Help Wanted discusses everything from difficult coworkers, tough bosses, and criticism to stringent deadlines, dress codes, and harassment and is a testament to how young people are prepared--or not prepared--for their entry into the workforce. It also offers tips for surviving the first months on the job and other advice not found in typical career guides.
