    To all young job Aspirants: What does being Professional Mean?

    'Being a professional is doing the things you love to do, on the days you don't feel like doing them.'-- Julius Irvin
    Professionalism means to be able to work under strict conditions of high proficiency setting high standards of accomplishments. These standards are based on certain code of conduct laid by the professional associates of different formal profession like Law Medicine Accountancy etc.
    It is very important to behave "professionally" in the workplace. If you wish to succeed in whatever you desire in life
    Professionalism includes:
    • Time is precious; respect others as well as your time. Be punctual, to office and meetings.
    • Be prepared always fall into the habit of jotting down points in writing. Prepare a written agenda for meetings.
    • Prepare short term goals to achieve targets always live up to the deadlines.
    • Fulfilling all responsibilities with utmost care is highly expected.
    • The way you talk with other employees and clients, do not forget to wear a smile always
    • Your attitude is that all matters towards your job and the way you conduct business deals.

    Avoid Unprofessionalism:
    • Certain behaviors can be fatal as the company and team may back from becoming successful.
    • Disrespect the time of the others do not let them waiting unnecessarily for a long period of time.
    • Not being able to complete the task within the given period of time.
    • Steal the ideas of others without giving them credit.
    • Not being able to keep up with the commitments.
    • Avoid gossiping during work time.
    • Never be a part of office politics

    You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Remember you are the face of the company that you are going to represent and thus the companies are very particular in putting their best men forward.
    Why do people have to get dressed up in formal suits to go to work? Why not wear casual clothes? The answer is that you appear more competent and professional, and you portray confidence, clad in this attire – as opposed to just a t-shirt and jeans.
    Good appearance makes you feel great about yourself, your self-confidence, and your attitude towards life.
    Besides your pleasant looks and impressive clothes, you need to be soft spoken, well behaved and full of mannerism.
    You should be able to infuse positive energy into people or the team you are working with. You attract a positive energy and you will notice that people start paying more attention to you. This makes you feel better about yourself and enables you to project positive inner emotions.
    Last but not the least let not in any case your personal life dominate your professional life at all. Professional and personal relationships should be kept far apart.

    A good narration by the author about professionalism. One does a work with utmost precision and in a very precise manner in adverse conditions also. Then he can be called a professional. There are money professionals in many fields these days. But many of them are professionals only in their work. They never maintain time and they never respect the time of others. They think it is great for them if they make somebody to wait for them. The late you are coming to the meeting you are big. Everybody has to wait for you. But how much time is last that will never be counted? A real professional will always respect his time as well as others also.
    A professional will always see that others will easily understand his point and follow the instructions. If he can take the other people with him then only we can call them professionals.

    always confident

    A very nice narration on professionalism but appears to be more apt for article section where you can get more points and cash credits.

    Anyway, you can elaborate it further as an article and submit it there.

    Working with discipline and knowledge as well as completing a project in time is the key to achieve professionalism. If one is not professional one will not be successful in the career elevation. Today is the time of specialization and skill which requires not only knowledge but other positive attributes in delivering the goods.

    Knowledge is power.

    Deepshree while I appreciate your interest to create such a lengthy content for the forum, but It would have more prudent to shift this write up in article section with some images of your own to support the contents and that would befitting and even fetching for you money wise. You have to use this forum wisely for interaction purpose and for inclusive reactions of the members. But the above write up best suits for a article and hence give a nice heading, summary and append with more details in article section, surely you will get 100 points and 100 rupees as cash credit.
