Wear the Right Hat: Get the Right Job

Here’s an excerpt from The John Hopkins News-Letter for all you job-seeking graduates and mid-life career changers:

The trend toward more “dress-to-impress” clothing is only furthered by the aggressive job market that exists today. Tanika White, fashion writer of the Baltimore Sun, says, “It’s a very competitive society, and anything you can do to set yourself apart from other people is a plus. Your clothes are the first thing people will notice about you. It doesn’t matter if you’re the best or the most qualified candidate.”

And look at this very scary admission from Through the Wardrobe: Women’s Relationships with Their Clothes, where a professional staff administrator of a university said that those in her job position “recognize quality. They know a silk tweed from a polyester tweed. And it says, ‘I am one of you. I know your rules. I am willing to play by them right now. And I expect from you what you give anybody else.'”

Wow. Who knew tweed could say so much?

Wonder what my hemp says? (Personally, I think it’s bilingual).

Which is either pretty impressive, or can get me into twice as much trouble…

Thanks for reading,
