Succeeding in the Business World

Summer time is around the corner and apart from all the sleeping, movie-watching, and beach trips there is one thing that is on everyone’s mind….summer internships.  Getting into the business world is tough and requires stacking up quality work experience, usually done during the “break” called summer.  We all hear about different ways to find good opportunities, go to workshops to work on resumes, and interview advice coming from literally everyone you meet.  But after passing through all those steps (congratulations!) the guidance goes away and you are on your own trying to figure out how to act friendly in a professionally acceptable way.   It’s important to impress your supervisors and be remembered at work, but how?
Have no fear; ‘Business Etiquette: 5 Rules That Matter Now’ gives basic advice on what to remember when thinking about how to act in the professional world.   These simple yet important rules can make the difference between you and your buddy co-worker on the next desk over, and can possibly land you a future upper level job just because of your socially acceptable performance.  Remembering every worker’s name and turning off cell phones (not just switching on vibrate) during meetings can have a huge impact on how people higher up perceive you and put frankly, how much they like you as an intern.  Check out the rest of the article for the other rules on how to impress this summer! So flash those pearly whites, whip out those firm hand-shakes and suit up for the summer time.
