In that loyalty is no longer a core value in corporate America, one should always be developing and expanding their network relationships. It is to late once you are out of work. Assume you will be looking and strengthen the quality of your newtwork relationships.
That dress for success may be a cliché but it is serious business in the business world. Always wear your best to the boardroom. Polonius said it best

Keep your work records with all fine details to be available to required officials that will speak for itself and for the work. Employees come and go but the records remain to keep trail of the work, transactions and information. Name stamp of person is not necessary on these records, since it has emblem of the Organisation.

I am now 61, and my first employer said never lie. Take your kicks for being wrong, and you will never have to cross the street for no one and he was right.
When I was working as an underwriterl liability, my former executive gave me a valuable lesson about acceptating risks. He said: Imagine you are a millionare and you should accept the offered risk with your own capital, would you accept the risk, and, if so, against which terms and conditions. This mindset in underwriting (and later on in my other insurance-activities) helped me straighten out business in a clear way and doing business in a transparant and effective way.
Keep the "person" and the "position" separated - remember that you occupy a position and when you are in an official interaction with anyone inside / outside the organisation,
Always be on time and if you commit to something, execute/delivery it on time. Do not give lousy excuses for not doing it or not on time because people know.
Every paper MUST have a date on it or it's just a meaningless piece of paper with no point of reference. If I can add a second, don't dress for the job you have today - dress for the job you'd like to have tomorrow!
