“For those of you going back to the office, or for those that have never worked in an office I’m gonna give you some tips so you don’t embarrass yourselves,” she said.
Her first tip involved dressing for success.
“Don’t wear anything to work that you would wear to the pool, to the gym, or to the club,” the business lady said in the video.
Next, she recommended keeping your phone on silent so you don’t disturb anyone else who may be trying to focus.
“No one wants to hear your phone ringing off the hook or the constant ding, ding, ding from your texts,” she said.
Her next tip also involved being conscious of how noisy you are as she said it’s important to always use headphones.
Ehsaei said there’s nothing more annoying than being forced to listen to someone else’s music when you’re trying to work, so keep the tunes to yourself.
In order to be a welcome office guest, the TikToker also said it’s important to make sure you’re clean.
“You want to make sure that you’re cleaning up after yourselves in common areas like the kitchen,” she said.
“I always know that one person who leaves a mess, and nobody likes that person.”
It’s also important to make sure your workspace is clean because that could say a lot about who you are, the expert hiring manager explained.
“A messy desk tells people that you’re not organized, and it will ruin your reputation,” she said.
Finally, the etiquette boss said under no circumstances should you ever gossip about your coworkers.
“Do you understand that gossiping about a coworker can actually get you terminated because that coworker can report you to HR?” Ehsaei said.
She explained that someone could say you’re creating a “hostile work environment” if they discover you were talking behind their back.
“So these are some tips for going back to work. I hope they help you out and help you not embarrass yourself,” the etiquette expert said.
This comes as another etiquette pro has revealed five rules on how to act after a job interview to land the gig.
Suzy Says on TikTok shares tips with her followers on how they can “gain confidence to master social situations,” her bio proudly states.
Her channel tackles everything from networking tips to what to do if you forget a name whilst you meet somebody out and about.
Suzy first advised hopeful professionals to send an email within 24 hours to thank the company for interviewing them.
This way, any additional information that the interviewers request can be sent in this email.
A handwritten note the next day saying thank you for the opportunity is another way to make a great impression, she explained.
Suzy said to be sure to tell them you “look forward to hearing their decision.”
Sometimes, companies may not respond in the promised time frame when revealing their decisions.

When this is the case, job seekers who have not heard from the interviewer by the specified time should follow up with a courtesy phone call asking if a decision has been made.
“It’s perfectly acceptable during the interview to ask when told to expect a decision,” she said.
