How important is it to present yourself well?
Very important. First impressions are big. That means you have to be wearing your game face nearly all the time. That means you have to suit up.
Here are some tips to help you make a good first impression.
- Get a good suit.
A good suit that fits well goes a long way. The best practice is to tailor it so that it looks best.
- Pay attention to your shoes.
People notice shoes. Find a comfortable pair that looks good and take care of them.
- Splurge on a few well made outfits.
Buying a few well made outfits can take you far. And it may be a better long term strategy than buying many less well made outfits.
