Young workers of the world, now hear this: if you want to be taken seriously at your job, you have to act and dress like a professional.
Just because you have landed a job, doesn’t automatically make you a professional. To be professional, you must not only be punctual, dependable, reliable and mature, you also have to have a sense of polish in your behavior (no emotional outbursts at department meetings, for example) and a sense of appropriate style for your office environment. Professional and stylish outfits are a must in your wardrobe.
Now, I agree with the young workforce of today – no one wants to be a sellout and no one wants to lose their sense of individuality. Believe it or not, I was a big rebel in the 80s and 90s, and I like to think I still am, but in order to win my employers, bosses, editors and business partners over, I’ve had to sand down my rough edges and develop a sophisticated wardrobe that gives the impression that not only am I creative and fashionable, but I’m also someone who can be trusted with big responsibilities.
What impression are you giving off to your employer now? Do you look like you were up late partying the night before? Do you look like you rolled out of bed just five minutes ago, didn’t bother to take a shower nor iron your clothes? Or, do you look like someone who is grateful for the professional opportunity she’s been given and has big plans to move up the corporate ladder fast?
Maybe you have all the right pieces in your wardrobe, but you just don’t know how to put them together. Leading fashion retailers Muse Apparel and eShakti have created some very professional and stylish outfits to inspire and guide you. Whether you’re a recent graduate or just in need of a professional makeover, take cue from these cute sets and get your look together. When you start to see an improvement in your career life and in the way your boss and professional colleagues treat you, you’ll be glad you did.
