(65)The Essentials of Business Etiquette by Barbara Pachter

The Essentials of Business Etiquette

Publication Date: August 2, 2013
Pages: 256


Do you know the proper etiquette for business dinners?  Or proper attire for a business dinner?  How about a job interview? Barbara Pachter educates us on the proper "Dos" and "Don'ts" of Business Etiquette in her new book, The Essentials of Business Etiquette.  She goes on to talk about hygiene, email etiquette, and even social media etiquette.  With 101 tips for her readers, even the most savvy business person is guaranteed to come away with some little nugget that you did not before.

Having been in the workforce and business world for almost twenty years I thought I was pretty up to date on all of the proper business etiquette, but it was nice to brush up on my skills and learn some of the new etiquette surrounding social media and technology in the workforce.  The author did a great job of including pop culture references and real life scenarios to demonstrate what is and is not appropriate in the work place.  It really added life to what could be considered to be a dull topic. Those scenarios really helped the book flow along nicely and enjoyable to read.

Bottom line, I know that  many of us view etiquette, even business etiquette, as "common sense" to many others it is not inherently known and a book like this is definitely needed.  The Essentials of Business Etiquette is a must read for every college graduate about to enter the workforce or even someone who is switching professions mid-career.  Implementing the rules of proper etiquette in the business world is sure to make one stand out to a potential employer.  Definitely worth the read.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
