  • respond to e-mails and phone calls ASAP
  • keep your desk and office neat and clean
  • keep a to-do list

  • go above and beyond
  • always take the opportunity to improve, and learn
  • listen to NPR while working (you’ll appear up to date on current affairs and educated as hell)
  • always look interested- take notes all the time (in meetings, how to do things so you don’t have to ask twice, and whatever you can’t remember)
