This Year, Dress for Success

When we started our Pinterest pages showing office appropriate attire, interview outfits,and even interview body language, it was more about demonstrating that PRofessional Solutions and our associates are familiar with all kinds of tools than giving pointers on appearanceImage

But in these challenging times for job search and career advancement, we’ve been surprised by the increase in people following our pages and re-pinning them.   Looking for “an edge”, a way to distinguish themselves from the many others competing for jobs or promotions, has many more individuals considering how wardrobe and body language can enhance their image and facilitate their career growth.

“Like many before me, I’ve always advocated dressing for the job you want, Imagenot the one you have, as well as being able to step into any meeting or presentation at a moment’s notice and looking like you belong there,” says PRofessional Solutions’ CEO Kate Perrin.  “I can’t tell you how often over my career that wearing the right business attire has put me in an advantageous position when least expected.”

Career dressing need not be expensive or require an extensive wardrobe.  And contrary to the concerns of those who want to have their own look or style it need not look regimented, as can be seen in the examples here.  Proper fit and proportion are essential whatever you wear.  Using color or accessories that demonstrate your own style will help you look in command.
