Many people make career goals as part of their New Year’s Resolutions. Maybe they will start their own business, seek an internal position with their current company, or jump over to a new career. Then of course there are the 2020 graduates who will finding themselves entering (or re-entering) the workforce with a new credential.
Those looking for a job know the basics. They have to enter the interview with confidence. They should have a firm handshake and make an appropriate amount of eye contact. Arriving with additional copies of you resume makes you appear professional before the interviewer. Dress to impress and for the position for which you are interviewing. An entry-level job MIGHT accept that an applicant wears a nice polo and khaki. Why take the chance though? At minimum, wear a dress shirt and tie (or the equivalent in formality).
Although Human Resource Professionals and Managers know better, they do make a judgment about you based on appearance. Are you well-groomed? Is your shirt wrinkled? Is your hair combed? It can be especially difficult to land a job if you show up to an interview unkempt. Instead, show off a polished appearance that exudes confidence. This is easily achieved by trimming your nails, combing you hear, and donning a well-fitting blazer.
Speaking of well-fitting clothes, if you are looking to grow professionally in 2020, you should probably see how your interview clothes fit. If they are in relatively good shape, there is no need to invest in new attire. You can clean your interview clothes by taking them to a Florida dry cleaner.
Blouses and dress shirts are not always designed to go in the regular wash. Look at the tags and think about how the material will fare in the spin cycle and on tumble dry high. It is not work the risk. Take the clothes to the professionals, and have them dry cleaned.
Blazers, sports coats, and jackets need to be taken to a professional for dry cleaning. You will look and feel more confident in a suit that is clean, pressed, and odor free.
Making a career goal in 2020 is not out of reach. If you set this goal, break it into smaller tasks to make it happen. Promise yourself to update your resume, reach out to contacts and network, and get your interview clothes professionally cleaned by a Dry Cleaner.
