DOUGSGUIDES are a set of online guides, ebooks and workshops to help you start out in the real world. The main topics are below and in the dougsguides nav bar to the right. You can read these topics in any order or just focus on the stuff that interests you. I'll try to summarize each topic and then provide more detail so you can get as much information as you like.
At the bottom of each page is a place for your comments, criticisms and suggestions. Anyone can read the comments, but you'll have to register to leave a comment. I know that sucks, but the internet is filled with jerks and spambots and this is a way to cut down on both.
Here are links to the guides:
Finding the right place to work, business cultures
Projects and tasks, business meetings, handling difficult situations and people, good stuff and bad stuff you might encounter
What is management, good bosses and bad bosses, performance evaluations, salary and promotions, how to quit
