‘Clothing’ in on moving up

by on

Climbing the career ladder requires the appropriate gear, say executives in a recent survey.

Executives were asked, “To what extent does someone’s style of dress at work influence his or her chances of being promoted?” Their responses:

Significantly      33%

Somewhat      60%

Not at all      7%

“The old adage about dressing for the position to which you aspire still holds true,” says Diane Domeyer, executive director of OfficeTeam. “A polished appearance lends credibility and may help employers envision the staff member in a greater role.

“While a proper wardrobe alone won’t earn you a promotion, dressing inappropriately could cost you one.”

Ask yourself these five questions:

1. Would my managers wear this?

2. Is it a distraction?

3. Does it give me confidence?

4. Is it clean and in good condition?

5. Is it comfortable?
