How to master your job.

About the Book

Be effective // How to master your job.

Job starters are just thrown in at the deep end and have to get on with it. Nowadays it is common to get "training on the job" focussing on technical skills, only in rare cases proper methodological skills are trained. Job starters rely on their colleagues and working environment.

This book targets young professionals and outlines practical tips to enable career starters in mastering their jobs. It imparts basic tools and patterns for the career start.

This book covers four major disciplines, which correspond to different capabilities young professionals have to build up - the sooner the better:

  • Managing yourself: Prioritization, planning & discipline, ...
  • Managing your tasks: Structure, communication & network, ...
  • Managing your energy: Develop routines, ...
  • Managing your development: Personal development, mentoring & co, ...

My claim is not to compete with professional literature and respective bestsellers, but to give an easy access to their fundamentals.

As the book progresses towards completion the price may gradually increase. By buying early you not only provide motivation, you also get a good deal because you get all updates for free. Target date for next version is end of Q2/2024
