The Importance of Professionalism at Work - ... Dishonestly never makes anyone look good, whether it's lying on one's resume or calling in sick. A true professional is upfront, so if you aren't qualified for the job either does not apply for it or send in your application anyway and explain why you'd be perfect for the job in spite of it (About.com, 2013). Also the dishonesty is to lie about being sick, if you need a day off take a personal or vacation day. Professionalism means respect, not misrepresent, discriminate, or harass others. Showing respect and treating all people as if they mattered are good characters that always make difference in workplace....   [tags: employment, professionalism]

Professionalism and Librarianship - Dewey declared librarians should consider themselves professionals (Swigger 314). Librarians, despite this, suffer from status anxiety about the professional state of librarianship. Trait theory, the traditional sociological tool utilized to evaluate the professional status of occupations, has traditionally deemed librarianship to be lacking the attributes required for professional status, therefore, not a profession, only a semi-profession (Abbot 431). Trait theorists have criticized librarianship for a lack of theoretical knowledge and authoritative service orientation (Nelson 2030)....   [tags: Library Science ]

Professionalism in Heart of Darkness and The Secret Sharer - The Importance of Professionalism in Heart of Darkness and The Secret Sharer      A reader would be hard pressed not to see Conrad's "tales of the sea" as representations of imperialism. The adventurous seafaring life that Conrad is most famous for depicting is relied upon the strong European merchant navy, which was the vehicle of the great colonial empires of the late nineteenth century.  And, as Conrad declares, the European colonial venture is driven not by humanistic impulses but by the profit-seeking search for exotic products, in Lord Jim for pepper or in Heart of Darkness for ivory.  While the earlier criticism of Conrad focused more on literary issues, such as Conrad's impressionism or the journeys of his flawed heroes, contemporary criticism largely devolves upon this historical context, debating whether Conrad is critical or supportive of imperialism, and whether he resists or reproduces the racial biases implicit in it....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Licensing vs. Certification of Computer Professionals - Licensing vs. Certification of Computer Professionals        Abstract:            Recent movements have attempted to either certify or license computer workers in order to promote professionalism. Certification of computer professionals is a more informal approach that would not be legally required, and it would promote professionalism while maintaining the flexibility necessary for a maturing discipline. Licensing, on the other hand, would imply a set of legal requirements for all computer professionals.  In this paper, I will show that there are two main problems with licensing.  First, the exact definitions of specific sub-fields are still unclear because the field continues to change rapidly.  This makes it difficult for a licensing board to make guarantees to the public.  Second, innovation is important to computing, and the licensing process could actually slow progress.  For these reasons, I argue that certification is a more practical approach....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]
