in Dealing with Bosses,Office Management

Q:  I tend to dress a bit casually for my position. That never seems to bother anyone, but soon I may be in the running for a promotion. How can I tell if I need to start dressing nicer?

A: Don’t wait. If you want that promotion, start dressing now in the same style as those one level above you. It certainly can’t hurt, and it’ll send a subtle signal that you’re serious about getting ahead. Even if your bosses don’t care much about dress, your professional appearance will enhance your confidence. You’ll start to think of yourself as someone on the rise.
