Summary:

First impressions DO count, and so does what comes afterward! Learn how to stand out, shine and make a stellar lasting impression as you enter the workforce. We send messages constantly—through our body language, actions, what we carry with us and what we wear...and most of this has nothing to do with what we actually say. Being aware of the messages you send is the first step in learning how to build an overall (and sustainable) image of professionalism that will assure others that you are capable, competent, and right for the job. In an easy-to-read format, and with simple and actionable steps, this book will help you discover how others perceive you when you make a first impression, and will show you how to ensure that the world sees you the way you want it to.

Personal Opinion:

I've found it to be a very informative  book that is both interesting, factual and a lot of suggestions the author makes are common sense. What I also liked is that its short and has helpful information crammed into 100+ pages and the information is easily categorized and can be found easily. There are always suggestions and room for improvement, and she even shares some personal anecdotes from her own journey through work. I would say it has a sense of some sort of timelessness that anyone can use and understand, and for the millennials its perfect because everything is in one place and it encourages them to be the best they can be. In some cases I do feel that it tends to be a little too optimistic, but other than that, very useful and helpful information in navigating through work and life.
