Diane Darling, owner of Effective Networking, didn’t realize her casual purple pantsuits were keeping her from landing clients—until people told her.
Darling sent a survey, using online polling tool SurveyMonkey.com, to her friends, relatives and associates. The tool allows people to reply anonymously. That’s where she learned that she dressed too casually, she tells The Washington Post.
If your career or job hunt isn’t going in the direction you’d like it to, send a survey of your own. Possible questions for your network:
- What three words come to mind when you think of my strengths?
- What three words come to mind when you think about areas where I could improve?
- Is there an area of my career where you think I’m making a mistake but appear unaware?
