From the Back Cover:
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.

This is what you don't learn in school that would be really useful to know before you "get out into to the real world!" What They See covers topics such as what to wear, accountability and what filler words to avoid when communicating on the job. This would make a great gift for a new grad, from high school or college. ~ Seastar
