Working Smart in Your First Job

Portrait of Ed BrayAs you graduate from the University of Redlands and walk into your first job, you’re going to be missing one tool that’s important to achieving early career success — the ability to work smart. What?  It’s not your fault. Redlands taught you a number of amazing things but it wouldn’t have been possible to teach you how to work smart in the workplace.  Why?

Join award-winning human resources guru and college instructor, Ed Bray as he answers that question, plus shares the message from his new critically-acclaimed book, Hello, Career – What You Need to Know to be Successful in Your First Job: Work Smart in an Office or Remotely, to show you how to work smart in your first job – whether in the office or a remote workplace – to the amazement of your manager and colleagues.

Ed takes a simple, funny, and straightforward approach to share advice, guidance, and real-world stories from key areas of the workplace, including:

  • The reason you’ll want to initially leave your schoolbooks at the door.
  • How the “office superheroes” will protect you.
  • Why it’s critical to understand and engage in your company’s benefits program.
  • How to gain quick wins and bonus points.

So, if you’d like to be in a position to be wise beyond your years five minutes after walking in the door at your first job, join Ed for this presentation!
