Our society does not emphasize the importance of professionalism, so people tend to believe that amateur work is normal (not).
Being a professional in your field means much more than wearing a tie or possessing a college degree and a noted title. Professionalism has to do with how you conduct yourself. As a professional, you will be counted on finding a way to get the job done. Responding to people promptly and following through on promises in a timely manner, as this demonstrates reliability. YES BE RELIABLE & ACTION YOUR PROMISES!
