When to call in sick


The amount of sick days one takes regardless of the level within a company, is something all employers take notice of. As an intern or entry-level professional, it can sometimes be a little nerve wracking to make that call. You want to show your dedication to your job, company and clients and prove that you can work through anything, but you also should be mindful of your own health and those around you you could potentially infect.
