1) Take your personal time. Come in on time, take your full lunch break and leave on time (unless there’s something urgent) because it’s so easy to burn out.
2) Be compassionate because you never know what’s going on in someone’s personal life.
3) Don’t get too buddy buddy with the residents.

Great topic!

Always take advantage to educate yourself from classes, books, magazines or the internet. Don't ever think you know more and can't learn more. In this industry there is always change whether it is technology, marketing, employee issues, etc.
You will learn something every day so keep an open mind and make common sense good decisions.
It's an ever changing industry, so be able to embrace change with patience and a positive attitude.

The Residents are not the only customers. Partners, vendors, contractors and even fellow Associates are.

Be the example! Don’t come in late or take long lunches. Always double check your work and complete it on a timely manner.
