Entering the Workforce Things to Know

I’m a fan of simple overviews. Who isn’t? Well, I have to thank Ron Lieber of the NY Times for writing a great piece for those who are new to the workforce (but just about everyone else can benefit from it as well). The piece is called A Primer for Young People Starting Their First Job.

The article uses brevity to explain the initial confusing aspects of entering the workforce. Those topics are:

  • Health Insurance
  • Taxes
  • Retirement

Several other resources are mentioned for more help. Here are a few of those:

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
