Most employers report that today's colleges and universities graduate some of the smartest students this country has ever seen. However, those same employers complain that many new hires lack a series of critically important professional skills. "I can teach a junior associate how to draft an iron-clad contract," senior law partners have told me, "but I can't teach a new hire how to think through a problem or behave in front of a client." If you need to position yourself as a successful new professional, you've come to the right resource. Mary Crane has developed a list of the 100 most important things you need to know in easy-to-absorb, almost tweetable chunks. You can't know everything. But tackle the "100 Things You Need to Know" about professionalism, and you'll perfectly position yourself to succeed at work.

About the Author

A graduate of the University of Missouri and George Washington University Law School, Mary Crane worked as a lawyer and a lobbyist before heading to the Culinary Institute of America ("the other CIA"), from which she graduated with honors. A CIA externship led her to the White House (yes, the one at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue), where she served as an assistant chef. During this time, she saw important business and political relationships formed and celebrated with the help of good food and wine. The experience yielded Mary Crane & Associates. Today Crane travels North America delivering high-impact, high-energy programs to Fortune 500 companies, leading law firms, and colleges and universities. She helps students, interns, and new hires successfully make the critically important transition from school to work. Mary Crane has been featured on 60 Minutes, Fox Business News, and ABC Radio. She has been quoted extensively in a variety of print and electronic media, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes.com, Fortune.com, and CNN.com.
