We talk a lot here about what it means to be professional, but we’ve never attempted to actually build a list explaining what that means … which I want to try to remedy, because for people just starting out in their careers, figuring it out as they go can be fraught with land mines. And it’s weird that something so important to people’s careers is so rarely taught in any organized way.
So over at U.S. News & World Report today, I take a stab at beginning to list what it means to be professional. You can read it here.
And my list over there is far from exhaustive, so I’d love to hear what else you think belongs on it.
