—Seeking Employment

Professionalism in relation to seeking employment can be defined as presenting high-quality products, having impressive competencies in a particular set of skills, communicating effectively in writing and orally, and representing yourself ethically and appropriately. In your written work, you will need to be thorough and thoughtful, spend a good amount of time editing and re-editing your work, and be ethical in representing your skills and experience. Orally, or in person, you will need to be efficient with your choice of words, and you must dress and act appropriately for the role of teacher. Express confidence without exuding it, and make those around you feel comfortable and at ease. At each stage of the employment-seeking process, you will need to be a professional and treat yourself and others around with dignity and respect.
