You Can Make Sure Employers Know
What They See Is What They Get

Has this ever happened to you? You go to a party or a restaurant and realize you're dressed totally wrong? Don't let this happen to you when you conduct your Job Search.

By the time you finish reading this page you'll have access to information dealing with such issues as:

Understanding how important Appearance is
Learning how to make your Appearance "say" what you desire others to know about you

Learn what successful people know about how important Appearance is to their success. It's true - "You don't get a second chance to make a first impression".

And as unfortunate or unfair as it seems - more often than not, people tend to remember the worst about another person.

So it becomes all the more important that you learn to do everything you can to make a good impression on anyone you meet. (You never know - someone you meet today can be a future employer or customer.) But especially when you're conducting a Job Search.

Your Appearance is a reflection of how you feel about yourself.

You desire an employer to sense that you're confident and believe in yourself. You also want them to know you'll fit in with their company's image.

What you can do Develop a style that fits an employer's industry/field and reveals the best things about you.

The best way you can help yourself know how to do this is to research the industry/field, its companies, and their relationship to the community.

Different industries/fields "demand" different dress codes.

Talk with people in or above the level of position you want to work. If you're fortunate, these people will already be working for the company to which you're applying. Because dress codes can even vary from company to company within the same industry/field.

School lessons "School" yourself on the current proper professional trends for the workplace. This means everything, from your hair to what perfume/cologne you wear.

While today's workplace dress codes have become somewhat more relaxed, there are some basic guidelines that have been standard forever and by which you can't go wrong.

For whatever position you're applying, follow a few simple rules:

Wear little jewelry, if any, (and nothing "flashy")
Wear solid and/or soft colors, (again nothing "flashy")
Be clean and tidy, (a must.)
Wear little or no fragrances, (perfumes, colognes, etc.)

Remember - Different people see things differently.

You desire your Appearance to be somewhat "neutral" but sharp.

Bottom line ... You desire your physical Appearance to accentuate your finer qualities and abilities, not detract from them.
