You're young, ambitious, entering the field of your dreams; you're on your own, the competition is fierce - and then you see your chance: the big story, the big role, the big discovery. But you'll have to cut a few corners, bend the rules, cheat a bit. What choices will you make? After studying more than a hundred young people launching their careers, these long-time researchers of 'good work' - work that is both skilful and honourable - find unsettling answers. Although young workers know what it takes to do good work, they don't always feel they can follow the ethical route. 'Later, when I'm successful,' is their implicit promise.
