However, what is indispensable is the right attitude – to be ready to work and show commitment towards work. Further, long hours of work and stress are inevitable in the profession. So learn to relax and be composed even in stressful situations. Your maturity as a professional will reflect from your composure and ability to handle tough situations calmly.
