1. Be proud of your appearance – dress neatly.

2. Be on time each day – never late. Stay until closing time! If you have to be late, call
   your supervisor. Arrange for absences ahead of time.

3. Be enthusiastic and interested in the firm.

4. Look for tasks to do – ask for work. Don’t just sit waiting for jobs to come to you.

5. Do each task well – follow through to completion.

6. Be careful in speaking and writing. Use good English. Use a spelling checker and
   grammar checker. Mail reports in promptly after cooperator signs.

7. If you have a problem with a cooperator, or other employees in the cooperating firm, try
   to work it out while it is a small problem.

8. If you have concerns or difficulties call or email one of the committee members.
