Professionalism is among the many important values one needs to have. That is one of the first qualities Andrew Degenholtz, ValueMags President looks for when he hires employees. The way you hold yourself, your attitude, and your actions in a workplace and now on social media, says a lot about the type of person you are. Someone who is careless with their behavior and their social media lifestyle likely will not be hired in a professional company, especially at a corporate level.

Here are some key tips and tricks to professionalism that ValueMags employees embody:

Dress to impress – although many people say that first impressions are not everything, in business they are. Although they may not be on a personal level, the reality is that people will not want to deal with you if they do not have a good first impression. First impressions take 3 seconds to make so be assertive, polite, and yourself when you introduce yourself. And above all things, always be the first person to stick your hand out and offer a handshake.

Handle Situations with a Positive Attitude – it is understandable that it is hard to handle certain corporate situations with a positive attitude. It is important that you do. But, having a positive does not mean overlooking the reality. It is about having an attitude that will make the best of the situation, coming up with realistic solutions, and troubleshooting effectively.

Cultivating Healthy Relationships – it is essential to form relationships that will help with the success of the workplace and business. Whether you like your work or not, forming relationships and enjoying who you work with will make your work slightly less burdenous or qualified as “work”.
