The Groupon Guide to: Professionalism

Whether applying for a job, or desperately clinging to one, nothing shows your dedication to staying employed like conducting yourself with a professional workplace demeanor. Get with the program with this guide to professionalism:

• If someone asks you how your weekend was, they are actually just saying “We are in the same room right now.” Reply with “Fine, and yours?” or a brief but compelling fabrication about taking an older relative skydiving.

• Always adhere to your company’s dress code. If you are not sure of your company’s dress policy, you can’t go wrong with a tuxedo made of promotional T-shirts featuring your logo.

• Don’t swear! It makes the angels cry, and if you think angels can’t see you—brother, you do not know angels.

• Remember the three Ts of professionalism—Tact, Timeliness, and Those Cookies Are for Everyone.
