Lose textspeak on the job
RU coming to mtg. TTFN.
Nah—not on the job. Even LOL sounds tacky in a corporate situation.
Thing is—employers want you to be able to communicate. So many students text—even during class—they mistake this for real communication.
Business etiquette matters, no mater how dopey you think it is.
One-word answers don’t seal friendships or impress bosses.
Same for being glued to the machine.
A real smile works wonders—not one made of punctuation.
When you meet someone, stand up, make eye contact.
And do not use text lingo in memos or work emails.
