Jack Covert Selects: This Week - May 1st

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:47 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Welcome to May. We are getting Spring showers here this morning in Milwaukee. Everything is really greening up. With rain forecasted all week, I am not sure when anyone is going to get out to mow their lawns.

This week, we are starting a new series. Authors Milo and Thuy Sindell will be walking us through the first twelve weeks of a new job and what you should be doing. It is the subject of their new book Sink or Swim: New Job. New Boss. 12 Weeks To Get It Right.

We will be publishing the Jack Covert Selects of May. There will be a new podcast later in the week. I also have alot of links that have been piling up in my bookmarks that need to be released.

Have a great week!
