The Professional

Generally, acting like a professional means working and behaving in such a way that others think of them as competent, reliable and respectful. Professionals are a credit not only to themselves, but also to others. Professional skills are career competencies that often are not taught (or acquired) as part of the coursework required to earn your degree.

Professional skills such as leadership, mentoring, project management, and conflict resolution are value-added skills and gathered experience essential to any career. A professional attitude means that you have the ability to effectively manage your time, display leadership, act in an ethical manner and show tenacity as well as determination.
