Sage advice for those new to the working world - Page 3

post #31 of 33
To differentiate yourself, you have to manage your image in the eyes of your superiors. Don't ask a stupid question if you can figure out the answer first. Be efficient and self-supporting. Be considerate, etc. Make yourself indispensable.

It took me about five years and a graduate degree to figure this all out, but Amen.
