"Always be in a good mood, no matter what. It will be difficult to do that from time to time; however, it will help to create positive relationships between you and your clients. They will appreciate your mood even though it may take a while. Some people can be extremely rude, sometimes without being aware of that. Try to respond in a professional and appropriate manner."

"I would reMary-Oakland 2commend getting involved in campus activities that involve technology or creativity. I also suggest getting familiar with online communities and/or blogs that focus on user experience design, such as the UxPA, UX Magazine, Smashing Magazine, AIGA and MIMA. Some of these, such as the UxPA, have local chapters with recurring events.
