Are you asking what’s the difference between a job and a career? A job is a short-term gig that allows you to make money. Whereas, a career is a long-term gig or series of gigs that align your work experience to your professional aspirations.

When working towards your dream career always put your best foot forward and that includes your work attire. Your outward appearance says a lot about you.  It’s your brand and it represents who you are and what you want to be.

The first step to achieving your dream career is to believe that you are capable of obtaining it. You have to align your mindset and your behavior.  Act in a manner that is fitting to your dream position before you even get it! If the job you have doesn’t have a dress code initiate your own!

Just because everyone else is walking around in casual attire Monday through Friday doesn’t mean you should.  Instead, dress business casual Monday – Thursday and casual on Fridays. STYLE TIP –> You’d be surprised how much you will stand out from the crowd simply by dressing nicely.

You’ve heard the saying dress for success, right? Dressing for success is wearing your affirmations out loud. It shows people that you want to be successful and you are serious about achieving your goals. It’s taking your mindset of “I will be XYZ ” and displaying it to the world.

I mean doesn’t everyone wear pearls to work on Monday? LOL, IMO (in my opinion) unless you have to wear a uniform you should always dress up for work (with the exception of casual Friday’s)! I’ve always overdressed at every place I’ve ever worked and I’ve worked in customer service at UPS, at Kinko’s (y’all remember Kinko’s?) and a slew of other odd jobs.  And YES I overdressed at every one of them.

How do you want to show yourself to your boss or to the world? As a slob, as a jeans and t-shirt, laid back, no worries kind of person or as a Goal Getter, an achiever, someone who goes after what they want and isn’t afraid to stand out?

My dress is currently on sale for $24 and I am wearing a size Large  (I probably could have gone with a medium). I also added a safety pin to make the deep plunge a little higher. I hope tomorrow when you are deciding what to wear to work that this post resonates in your head. Take a few extra minutes to add some thought to your outfit and stand out from the crowd.
