PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s not your father’s working world out there. Nor are young people necessarily prepared for what they will find.

There are few participation awards in the office, says Aaron McDaniel, a serial entrepreneur and author of The Young Professionals Guide to the Working World.

He’s aiming at the millennial generation plus or minus a few years, to help them get over any sense of entitlement and the transition from four-year high school and college cycles to the 40 year career cycle.

By way of example, he creates two archetypes.

“One is the STAR and one is the DOPE. So the STAR is savvy, tenacious, adaptive and resourceful, and the antithesis is the dope; someone who disses opportunity, potential and earnings. And it’s so of a spectrum so you want to move toward being the STAR and taking ownership of you career,” says McDaniel.

The book has online resources as well, to pinpoint your place on the STAR-DOPE graph.
