The tricky transition from college to career can mean a year (or three, or five) of nerve-wracking niche-hunting. Workplace newbies can ease the angst with Going Corporate: Moving Up Without Screwing Up by Brad Embree and Jared Shapiro (St. Martin’s Press). Unless you just spent four years inside a beer bong, some of their advice will seem pretty common-sensical — don’t harangue co-workers about religion, don’t play loud music at your desk — but workers of all ages will enjoy the typology of office creatures like The Human Clock and The One-Upper. Painful-but-true touch: That blank page under “Importance of your college transcript.”
