Habits You Might Not Realize Are Unprofessional

Whether you work in an office, in retail, or at a coffee bar, there are some things that you’re probably doing that are unprofessional even if you don’t realize it. Bustle put together a list of a few things you might want to try refraining from next time you’re at work.

  • Using your phone all day which, I get it, it’s hard to put your phone down sometimes, but using it at work can be very distracting from your task at hand. Try limiting your phone use to just your lunch hour.
  • Using speech fillers such as “um” and “like” makes you sound not confident and unprepared for the speech or presentation that you’re trying to give. A quiet pause to gather your thoughts is much better than a one second-long “ummmmmm”.
  • Not greeting people when you get into work, whether that be your co-worker in the cubicle next to you or the receptionist that you walk by each day. Not greeting them with a quick “good morning!” could convey a negative attitude towards the people that you work with. Try to be more friendly! It’s not all about work!

Being professional is not all about getting your work done, but also about how you go about doing it. You need a professional attitude, professional attire, and a teamwork spirit. People take notice of these things.
