Looking professional in the workplace

Have you been sent home due to inappropriate dress?

That would be really funny and you would be the talk of the workplace probably for the rest of the week.

In the end, probably wouldn’t bode so well for your future at that workplace.

Does image affect personal success? I think it does. No I’m not superficial, (ok I love it when I get presents, hint hint) but reality is if I’m dressed appropriate for work every day, no one would even notice.  Better to be overdressed, right?

I feel as I’m always hearing about the horror story of the Gen Y who was severely under dressed for the job interview. Ya know, like the girl who shows up like she’s on her way to her sorority date party?

Personally I believe appearance makes a difference in the workplace. It’s one of those subconscious things, either you get it or you don’t.

    Do me a favor – Don’t publish these on a blog. That’s the only thing I ask – SPAMbots pick up the addresses. This is bad.

    Thanks! 🙂
