Latest Tips
#6 CREATE YOUR SPACE: Unless you're in a temporary position, make your space yours. Find (or order) post-it notes, pens, highlighter, stapler and a blank notebook or notepad. Arrange your seat ergonomically and move your keyboard and phone according to your dominant hand. Arrange files to a smart system that you will remember. Choose a small drawer for personal items like that emergency mouthwash to swig after lunch. All in all, make sure that your workspace has everything you need and is arranged where you'll be at your utmost productive.
#14 PACK YOUR LUNCH: As a young professional, you are not rich. Your boss and colleagues probably order lunch from Pier 59 French Bistro everyday. But you are NOT them. Even though you see this behavior everyday and can easily get caught up in it, you are NOT making their money and therefore NOT able to splurge on daily food ordering. So suck it up and pack a lunch. You will find yourself in a much better financial situation. And hey, perhaps you'll start a trend.
#9 DON'T TAKE PART IN OFFICE GOSSIP: You shouldn't do this for so many reasons. It's great to make friends, but always maintain your distance with office gossip and nay saying other employees. You never knows who knows who, who's moving where or who's watching you. Also, don't start any gossip by accidentally blabbing about your beer fest weekend that left you so hungover you barely made it to work. In fact, keep all personal details and storytelling to a minimum.  Cause next thing you know, that office gossip is about you.
