And Snapchat, that’s a complete no-no, as well. It reflects a lack of focus on your office work and your performance too will deteriorate.

8. Be formal in office too
Formal is not only a dress code it’s a way of behaving too. Be formal in your tone, language and pitch at all times. Avoid using casual slang words (like whassup) if you ever want to be taken seriously.

Respect your boss and seniors at work. After all, they are more learned and more experienced, just like the elders at home. So, always try to give them respect no matter if they are younger in age.
