He discusses the importance of leaving the house to find employers at venues such as job fairs, trade shows, and conferences, and even Starbucks. Weiss points out that work is a means to getting out on your own, and he offers encouraging advice and tips for how to do just that, such as: Establishing a home office for job hunting Using social media effectively to find employers and increase your chances of getting hired Dressing appropriately for job interviews Starting your own business Targeting companies that value the skill sets of returning military personnel Evaluating and negotiating job offers And much more! Welcome to the Real World is not only the ultimate career guide for finding your first job, but also for understanding the real world of work, and for beginning the rest of your life.
