Managing Service OrganizationsTest 2Previous Career Tidbits:1. Regardless of what industry you are in, send a thanksgiving card if you’re going tosend a card. This is because not everyone celebrates the same holidays, for example Christmas and Hanukah. It is also good because you “beat the rush”, instead of being 1 of 25 cards you will most likely be 1 of 1. You also need to handwrite the card to make it more personal.2. The sunset policy is a policy she picked up from a guest speaker. This policy is ALWAYS every workday return all phone calls before sunset. This is good because you might forget, any later the person you are trying to contact may be busy with dinner or the time may be inconvenient, and a day can make a very big difference in the real world. Money is very important, and whatever the person is calling about is very important. You may not think something is extremely important it may be to the person you did not contact and they may be biting their nails all night. No matter how awful that phone call might be, you yourself need toget it over with.3. The Accountability DiamondMentor You MentorYou need to find a mentor. You need to find a superior to guide you. You also need to mentor someone that is younger and less experienced than you. Sororities have bigsisters and little sisters to mentor people. You also need colleagues to learn from. It could be in your major or someone in your organization.4. Always shower in the morning to be successful, not at night. If you shower at night you don’t look professional nor do you care about your image.9/17/13Career Tidbit: People, leaders, ought to spend 50% of their time leading themselves.STEPHEN COVEY, Ph.
