Not Intuitively Obvious: Transition to the Professional Work Environment is a book directed at one goal: to provide the new professional with the knowledge to excel in the professional work environment without the requisite of devoting many years learning from mistakes.

Apply the approaches described in this book, and you will increase your chances of succeeding in your professional endeavors. Rodríguez dispenses well-timed advice during difficult economic times, while also including a thought inspiring workbook.
