People can easily slip into robotic mode when starting a new career and trying to act professional, according to Glassdoor. But being unique and yourself doesn't mean unprofessionalism.
When starting a new career, take interest in others' personal lives. As they share more about themselves, common interests will be found that can open the door for you to share about yourself.
"The office doesn't have to be a place where you feel constrained and limited — it should be a place where a number of interesting individuals come together to work and leverage their unique perspectives and identities," said the article.
Sharing opinions and values helps express who you are, according to Glassdoor. However, make sure to stay in line when sharing opinions. Staying calm in discussions and avoiding heated topics is the professional route.
