How to Quickly Climb the Corporate Ladder: What Graduates Really Need To Know Before They Plunge Into The Work World

Available on Amazon and Kindle

SEATTLE, May 12, 2015 – Every year, thousands of young graduates enter the working world with a pile of college debt and virtually no knowledge of corporate life outside of a brief internship, what they watch on TV and hearsay. Many fade into obscurity in multinationals because they are unable to stand out and get noticed in an increasingly competitive labor market.

Stephen Krempl aims to change all that in You’re Hired – Now What Do You Do?, a comprehensive guide packed with carefully curated career insights. As the CEO of Krempl Communications International (KCI) – and a veteran corporate executive of Fortune 500 companies such as Starbucks, YUM Brands and Motorola – Krempl leverages his extensive knowledge on training and development to give graduating students insider insights to the real expectations of the work world.

“I looked and couldn’t find any classes called “How to Quickly Climb the Corporate Ladder” listed in any school curriculum guides for my three daughters,” explained Krempl. “The fact is, college is simply not designed to teach you how to make a strong impression in the critical early stages of your career.”

An internationally sought-after speaker and consultant, Krempl has spoken at universities and conferences around the world. When he visited university campuses, he observed that many students were unaware of the full extent of the differences between campus life and the corporate world.

“Many educators say kids aren’t sufficiently prepared for internships or jobs,” he added. “They aren’t taught the practical things they need to succeed in the working world beyond their major.”

Krempl’s book eschews the conventional wisdom of careers services for a competency-based approach to workplace excellence, with a 90-day plan on translating career tips into tangible goals.

The book also imparts countless other valuable lessons for young employees, such as soft skills, navigating office politics, raising energy levels, and networking within and beyond a company.

“What do I need to know to excel in the working world? What do my managers and leaders want from me? After trying to answer questions like these, graduating becomes the easy part.”
