I am new to linux commands

I am working with a Fedora installation and I have been trying to implement the join command

I have two files BusinessAssociates PersonnelAssociates - Both files are Identical in fields - I have been trying to join them together and have output of the 2nd and 3rd field  which is first name and phone number into a new file called friends. I have been able to execute other commands - but the join command is being difficult for me. Any help would be appreciated

Not that it would make a difference - but I am running this installation on VMWare workstation
