Texting on the job: r u lol?

As web-enabled mobile devices became more common, communication followed. We now routinely expect to send and receive work-related text messages. As an intern, you may have need to communicate "on the job" via email and text. Tip for successful business communication: use the technology but not the shortcuts.

So, keep text messages (as well as email) as short as possible while using standard spelling and capitalization.
