Once you land your first professional job, you enter the world of office politics. You'll gain experience in getting along with bosses and coworkers, as well as maneuvering your way up the career ladder. It takes time, so be patient with yourself and most of all, enjoy.

This may be your dream job, or the first in a series as you build your career. Keep in mind that people will be laid off, fired or downsized at least once in their career lifetime. Be prepared to manage your career like a pro!
