LF Vid #3: Professionalism

It always bugs me when people badmouth clients/employers on forums or otherwise carry on in a really unprofessional manner online and excuse themselves by saying, "Oh please, it's only the internet!" So I thought I'd make a video post about it.

Professionalism from Eric Terry on Vimeo.

The fact is, this stuff really matters, and not just if you're running an online business or are trying to get work through the internet in some other way. People forget that the only thing they have to present themselves is little bits of text on a monitor; those few words are the equivalent to a first impression, and as most people know, first impressions last forever!

Anyways, I sat down and came up with what I felt were the top 3 "tenets" of professionalism online, though I'm sure I missed a bunch more. I may do more in this series, so if you have suggestions let me know!

PS: Sorry for the terrible Russian accent/jokes!

Perfect timing for this video, Eric! Especially with all the stuff that went on at Emptees.

Yeah, sadly this stuff should be common sense, but unfortunately it's not these days... :(
