Employer Expectations/Managing Corporate Life

  • Dennis Lonergan


Have you ever wondered if you will end up working for a large corporation or an entrepreneurial business? Some people seem to thrive in one environment, but falter in another. Or, they just seem to enjoy one more than the other, while being able to function equally well in either. This chapter will not provide you a crystal ball to look into and predict your future career path. However, hopefully, it will provide you with information on life in the corporate world that you will find useful at some point in your career, be it in a large corporation or a small entrepreneurial venture, or both.
