Young adults entering the workforce have been labeled many ways, including the "Me Generation", "Generation Why" and the "Entitlement Generation." They're often portrayed as being unrealistic, and behaving as if entitled to every benefit society can offer , including great jobs, higher salaries, flexible work schedules, material possessions, and all of the perks that come from years of hard work - but without the years, or the hard work. Regardless of their actual behavior or outlook, these unfavorable generalizations put young adults at a disadvantage when they look for employment, and then after they begin their new jobs. To complicate matters, they're also dealing with personal changes that can be difficult and troublesome. That's where Pocket PorchLights comes in. Scott Abbott recognizes and appreciates the many challenges that young adults face as they enter the "real world".Thanks to his background, compassion and understanding - together with the input from hundreds of people (young and old) who he talked with about these realities - Scott provides endearing anecdotes, enlightening thoughts, and practical recommendations to help young adults and their families navigate, manage and enjoy their new jobs, and their new life.
Pocket PorchLights is an important, fun, and meaningful book. It will challenge, educate, entertain, and inspire young adults of all ages.
