» First Impressions: Professional Dress

We’ve all heard the saying,

“Don’t ever judge a book by its cover,” but in the job search and in the professional world, that adage doesn't apply. First impressions matter and the way people dress says a lot about them, from how much they respect their job to how much they respect themselves and even how far they are going to succeed. The saying people should pay more attention to is, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” What does it mean? Your appearance should speak volumes about where you want to go in life and not how content you are in your current position. Source: Vault
