People who have integrity are honest, work hard, and are committed to their workplace. They have the community’s best interest at heart. While integrity has a strict definition, students may struggle with professionalism as it applies to specific standards for a role, position or industry. In other words, what is seen as appropriate and professional for one group may not be so for another. Here are some agreed upon tips about professionalism regardless what you are doing or where you are working:
- Be on time.
- When you say you will do something, follow through!
- Have a good attitude.
- Work well with others.
- Practice good communication skills.
- Most of all, be accountable and learn from past mistakes.
