How to be more professional

by on

Today’s job market is mercurial at best. If you want to hold on to your job, make sure you do everything you can to present yourself as a professional at all times. Start by taking these tips from Careerealism’s Dixie Somers.

  • Show up early. View being on time as being late. Starting 10 minutes early will show your employer just how serious you are.
  • Be a team player. Make an effort to cooperate, go the extra mile and avoid making excuses when your work isn’t up to snuff.
  • Set smart boundaries. Be careful about using inappropriate language, telling offensive jokes, airing relationship troubles and sharing financial difficulties.
