The first of its kind, How to Get Fired! aims to help young people transition successfully into the professional world by first telling them everything not to do. The book introduces readers to the Four Pillars of Poverty - Fake Your Resume, Establish Your Incompetence, Destroy Your Work Ethic, and Alienate Your Coworkers - and ''encourages'' readers to do each of the top ten things that most commonly cause people to get fired, before wrapping up with a more serious discussion about the various things new employees need to know in order to survive and thrive in their working life. Hilarious, informative, timely and relevant, How to Get Fired! is essential reading for anyone about to take that first plunge into the job market - not to mention any employees who wish to remind themselves of some of their less-than-ideal former colleagues.
