Entering the Work Force

 

Internships offer the chance to really get to know the workings of an organization and possibly secure a permanent job. First impressions define you and appropriate behavior reinforces that initial impression. While there is some apprehension about being back in the office after a hiatus of working from home, now is a good time to revisit the protocols of in-person business.  Being proficient in business etiquette and understanding the need for tact and diplomacy is a good start. Showing sensitivity to others opinions and knowing what to say and how to say it will prevent damaging a relationship or causing offense. Effective communication and appropriate body language will go a long way to earning respect and trust.
