Hurst: Watch Casual Emails When Applying

So you've finally graduated from college and landed your first real job. But do you know the do's and don'ts of workplace etiquette? We asked three workplace etiquette professionals what they thought were the worst faux pas, including DEE HURST, director of human resources at the University of Iowa's Tippie College of Business, who warns against forgetting your cyber-etiquette.

A version of the story also ran on the Website of the News-Journal in Delaware.
