Win an iPad2! Tell us in 100 Words or less what you learned in your first job out of college.

By Julie Ogilvie

The transition out of college into the corporate world is a very difficult time for many recent grads. The corporate environment is very different than what most students have experienced.  What to wear, how to behave, the unspoken expectations – everything is new and unknown.  And often bewildering!

SkillSoft wants to hear your stories on how you handled the transition from Campus to Corporate. What was the most important thing you learned at your first job out of college? Did you make any big mistakes that you wish you had been prepared for? If you could offer recent graduates any advice what would it be? Please share your stories by leaving a comment on the SkillSoft Facebook page. The best story, selected by SkillSoft, will be awarded an iPad2! Be as descriptive as possible – we want to feel your pain! Please keep your comments to 100 words or less and remember no company, bosses and/or people’s names! Complete Terms and Conditions can be found here.
