Contributed by Lili Feinberg, Associate Publicist at Simon & Schuster Children's Books (ECC Committee Member)

  • Always keep a pair of nice shoes, like dress shoes, flats etc. and a blazer at your desk in case you need to dress up for a surprise meeting or need to change out of something you wore in to accommodate for weather.
  • Stay on top of everything! If your company is offering a training course of any kind in an application you hear your bosses talking about, take it so that you can glean first-hand knowledge about what is going on!
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Your coworkers are there to help you just as you are there to help your coworkers. Making sure you understand what is going on regarding all aspects of projects you are involved in helps you better accomplish your goals.
