You graduated...

You've found a job...

Now it's time to survive your first year of work.

Whether you worked your way through college or not...chances are good that you've never had a job that is as important as your first job out of college. 


Not only is it your first step into the real's the building block of your future.


Do you worry about what is expected of you? How you will fit in? or If you made the right career decision?


Do you want to know...


        how much of your college education is applicable to the real world


        what your boss will really be looking for in your performance


        how to increase your odds of being noticed and promoted


Obviously the more you know from the beginning...the better your chances of taking the right steps.




How do you learn all of this?


That is why we created the Surviving Your First Year of Work audio.





Quarterlifers are free agents today


Once upon a time people were simply paying their dues at their first job.


This is how it was for our grandparents' generation.


They graduated from college, took on a menial job at a company, and then over the course of the next 30 years worked their way up the company ladder until they retired with the gold watch and benefit package.


It no longer works this way...not even close.


Today we are switching jobs on average every year and two months.


No longer do companies have loyalty to their employees or employees to their companies.


Instead we are free agents.  We are paid and rewarded based on our ability to perform.


If we don't perform a company won't keep us around.


And on the flip side...


If we do perform but aren't fairly compensated we can leave and go to a company that will reward us.


Your performance and participation are critical to your success and this starts with your first job.


The bottom line is that it's no longer a time of simply paying your dues.  Instead it's where you will be learning job and people skills that you will be building on the rest of your working life.


Your first job is your first impression into your career.  It is the one and only time you will have a blank canvas.


The irony is that most of spend four or more years of college and tens of thousands of dollars in an effort to get a job and then we struggle our first year without seeking any guidance.


This is where Jason Smith comes in. 

Jason summarizes over 14 years of human resource experience in which he has helped over 300 quarterlifers make their way through their first year of work.

About T. Jason Smith:

      First Year Work Experience  

For over 14 years, Jason Smith has held human resources positions in the media, oil and gas, and merchant industries. What Jason has seen over and over in each of these industries is that quarterlifers consistently have the same frustrations and doubts during their first year of work.

Not only have quarterlifers come to Jason with the same questions, he has also found a pattern of self-sabotaging behaviors that quarterlifers show during their first year.

Jason's research along with his book Leaving Campus and Going to Work are his  response to this pattern. A sought-after personal coach, he advises new grads and their parents about post-college pitfalls and opportunities.
