unprofessionalism

Do you ever wonder what to do, what to say, or what to wear at work?
Does networking make you nervous?

Whenever someone meets you in person, interacts with you electronically, speaks with you on the phone, or socializes with you at a conference or business networking event, it’s important that they sense your acumen, confidence, and professionalism. Whether you’re making a style statement or a formal introduction, you have complete control over how you present yourself.
But even the most experienced professionals find themselves in a quandary from time to time. We’ve all been unsure about what to wear to an interview or a meeting, unaware of the nuances of our body language, or unfamiliar with corporate protocols and how to communicate clearly.
