In your own words, describe what professionalism means to you within your career field. There should be no citations in this section and no quotes.
Think about someone who you believe truly exemplifies what it means to be a professional. Introduce this person to us and how you know him/her (if you know him/her). Explain why you feel this person is truly professional and support your explanation by aligning at least one of his/her characteristics or actions with material from one of this week’s sources. Cite the source in APA format as it is used and as a reference at the end of the post.
Examine your own level of professionalism. What areas are you already strong in? What areas may be areas to further develop?
In your follow-up posts, offer two specific suggestions for their area(s) of development. In addition, review their APA and either state that it is done correctly, or offer advice to help them improve.
