Dressing for Success Can Help Your Career More Then You Think

Business Technology | March 9, 2012

Putting your best foot forward in life is important, particularly in the workplace. Hooking a job is a lot more difficult now then ever, so it is more important than ever before to dress for success.

I know very well what you are thinking: “The corporate world has gotten so casual—people wear flip-flops for goodness sake! Workplace attire doesn’t matter anymore.” False! The way you dress says a whole lot about you and how you feel about your career, and potential employers certainly notice.

Here is an easy rule for any job interview: Overdressed is far better than under-dressed. Even if you’re interviewing for a company with a relaxed working environment, you will still have to wear proper business attire to your interview. The better dressed you are, the more you show yourself off as someone who is focused on their career and this particular job. If you show up to an interview dressed down, you’re starting from a weaker position.

In the workplace you should still evaluate the clothing you wear. Even in a casual place you can certainly still look sharp. When you just grab yesterday’s jeans off the floor and run out the door you won’t get noticed. Individuals who put more thought into their style stand out from their peers, which is never a bad thing if the boss is looking to promote someone!

Of course, you still have to be a good worker. You could be the best-dressed person on the planet, but it will not help you if you don’t do your job well. All things being equal, the better-dressed employee will certainly make the better impression.
