Abstract:

If you want to be on the inside track, you need to know the real rules of corporate culture ... and how to beat the "old boys' network" to find your own formula for success. When you seek a job at a large corporation - even a progressive, socially responsible corporation - you're playing on somebody else's home court. This is the book that tells you how the game is played. In Inside Corporate America, an accomplished African American businessman tells you how to get in the door ... and what to expect once you cross the threshold. First he reveals eleven steps to "getting inside"--Basics like interviews and resumes to subtle issues like dressing the part, dealing with racism, and projecting the right attitude. Then he delves into long-term career strategies - including a list of twelve pitfalls to avoid. With a list of the top 25 companies to work for, this comprehensive, no-nonsense guide shows you how to make it on your own - and on your own terms.
