Promote Your Professional Image

Dear Friends,

We have all heard the phrase “you may not get a second chance to make a first impression” and this may be especially true in our professional life. As the pace of business continues to speed up, Hiring Managers are squeezed to do more with less – especially with time. In many cases, Managers are pressed to make decisions about their staff in a shorter period of time. So it is more important than ever to exhibit a positive attitude in the workplace, in addition to showing high performance. As professionals, we need to remember that our actions and attitude directly affect our professional image, and maintaining a good image is key to our success. Whether seeking a new job with a new company, or trying to advance within your current company, it is important to maintain a positive attitude and professional image.

In this issue of The Acclivity Health Report, our experts focus on the importance of professionalism and what it means for your career. Our first article, Telephone Etiquette and Your Job Search, will help assist readers to perfect their telephone etiquette and ensure that every call they make or take leaves a good lasting impression. In our second article, How to Resign from Your Job with Class, we discuss how to resign from a position while maintaining a professional image and without burning bridges. We hope you enjoy our February issue!

Thanks for reading!
