You will be learning constantly on the job. Be open to - or even seek out - additional training, workshops, and certificates to increase your potential and value in the workplace.

Teamwork makes the dream work. 

It's important to focus first on your individual tasks, but, remember that collaboration is critical in any job, so always pitch in to help your colleagues with their work, too.

Embrace problem-solving.
