DOVER — The Dover Public Library will host a free community program featuring author Dan Muller at 6:30 p.m. May 30 in the library’s community room.

Muller is the author of the new book, Changing Collars: Lessons in Transitioning From Blue-Collar Roots to White-Collar Success." In the last 20 years, over 10 million Americans have grown up in blue-collar families but have chosen to pursue white-collar careers. Changing Collars is a memoir focused upon helping and enabling these and future blue-collar Americans to succeed in their white-collar careers. Drawing upon his own experiences growing up in a blue-collar family, and in his 35 years of gradually learning the ropes and eventually climbing the corporate ladder in a white-collar world, Daniel Muller provides insights and lessons to help millions of ‘blue-collar root’ employees on their white-collar career journeys.

Changing Collars provides lessons about the significant differences between blue-collar and white-collar cultures and mores, as well as highlighting the common misunderstandings that blue-collar candidates have about the white-collar world.
