Marketing Communications Manager Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Marketing Communications Manager in Covina:
`"$Be indispensable."`
Be reliable ~ show up for work. Be ready to work when you do show up. Learn all you can by listening to others. Be thoughtful before offering your opinion, if you know enough to have one. Don't say things you think are clever and you won't ever have to say, "I'm an idiot. I'm sorry." Do say, Yes, I can stay . . . I can do it . . . I can pitch in, etc. Do the things you're asked to do to the best of your ability whether you agree with them or not. Remember how you feel now as a newbie and help out other newbies as they come along and you move on up. Cheers!
