Profreshional
A Guide to Surviving the Freshman Year of Your Professional Life
by Brooke Carter View author's profile page

Overview


Profreshional: A Guide to Surviving the Freshman Year of Your Professional Life is an anecdotal self-help book written for individuals who are about to (or have recently) joined the workforce. It covers a little bit of everything – from tactical tips on topics like meeting facilitation and how to structure your email inbox, to listing out to-do's and to-don'ts while drinking at corporate functions, to candid conversations about mental health and how it may manifest at work. Each topic discussed is done so with one major goal in mind: help young professionals prepare (and therefore, protect) themselves as they embark on their journey through the new-hire learning curve.

Description


Profreshional: A Guide to Surviving the Freshman Year of Your Professional Life is comprised of three parts.

Part One: The First 90 Days covers a collection of tactical tips to utilize when you’re just getting started. From navigating Outlook, to facilitating meetings, and everything in-between, consider this section as a starter kit to help you dominate your onboarding program and blaze through the new hire learning curve.

Part Two: Everything Else details how “life happens” inside of the office, outside of the office, and the inevitable overlap between the two. We’ll cover a collection of real-life scenarios new employees can anticipate and advice for how to navigate the aftermath.

Part Three: From the Masses offers a collection of others’ perspectives and advice specific to their Profreshional experiences. The purpose of this section is to combat the fact that my experiences may not be as relatable to some readers as they will be for others.

About the author


Brooke Carter is a first-time author and young professional currently located in Seattle, Washington. She recently moved to the West Coast after three fabulous and fast-paced years of living in New York City. Her full-time career experience to date has been rooted in Junior Talent/University Recruitment as well as Business, Project, and Program Management for Global Data Science teams. Her enthusiasm around her own career development extends to that of family, friends, and strangers, which is a large motivation behind her publishing Profreshional. She hopes that sharing a compilation of her experiences, lessons learned from others, and favorite mantras will help others navigate their own post-collegiate transition into working full-time. When she's not working, writing, online shopping, exercising, or talking her friends' ears off on FaceTime, you can find Brooke a few strong margaritas deep, eating at her favorite local vegan restaurants. Today, Brooke works as a Program Manager of Machine Learning Education in Tech; a role and industry she never would have fathomed she was capable of pursuing until now. Her ACL, MCL, and meniscus are (slowly) on the mend, and she is thoroughly enjoying this new chapter of life she calls "Post-Profreshional Recovery."
