Professionalism is an attribute that many employers look for in prospecting employees. Many careers involve working with kids and being professional at the same time.
When asked why professionalism is important to the Child Development club, Anderson wrote in an email; “Professionalism is important to our club because the majority of the students are on the career path. Many of the students aspire or are already in the early childhood career path. The students will be or are working with children in a variety of settings, and it is very important to our profession that we ARE professional.”
