      1st Answer Example

      " It is extremely important to display professionalism when we are out in the field conducting audit procedures at our client's place of business. First and foremost, I know that I must look the part by adhering to the appropriate dress code. For some clients, a suit is appropriate. For others, business casual attire. Secondly, I know I must act professionally. This means speaking respectfully to all personnel, whether it is the company's CFO or a personal assistant. I shouldn't take personal phone calls or play music loudly. As a general rule, I shouldn't do or say anything that would harm our firm's reputation."

      "I would only act in a way that does not jeopardize our firm's reputation. Like wearing formal business attire or maybe business casual if the client's office is more casual. Secondly, not answering personal phone calls if I am in a conversation with someone, be it the CFO or maybe the junior assistant. If I have to answer in an unforeseen emergency situation, I would seek permission from the person I am interacting with to allow a moment to take the phone call. Some simple basic office etiquettes speak a lot about a person and also reflect the firm's respect."
