Confused about how to ‘Dress for Success’? If you are a job seeker or a promotion seeker, knowing how to dress professionally and avoid image blunders at work, can provide the competitive edge you are looking for. This course is designed to increase professionalism by taking the confusion out of, “what to wear to work”.    Gain knowledge and skills to stand out as a professional, by dressing more effectively in business casual to business formal environments.       You will:  Identify professional guidelines for Formal to Informal business attire.Determine what to wear to look authoritative, credible, approachable or relaxed.Discover the power of colour and how to wear it effectively.Recognize ‘image-makers’ and how to incorporate them into your business wardrobe.Spot ‘Image-Breakers’ – those costly faux pas that undermine your effectiveness at work.  The term ‘Dress for Success’ was coined in the 1970’s, by author John Molloy.  However, the rules for business dress have changed. Since the dawn of ‘business casual’ dressing in the 1990’s, companies continue to shift their requirements on what to wear at work to dress for success. Some have established dress codes with specific guidelines, while others leave it open for their employees to determine what’s appropriate. Without defined guidelines, dressing for work can be very confusing.      This course answers the questions, “What to wear? How to wear it? When to where it?” It will help you dress more effectively and feel more confident about workplace attire in today’s global environment.          Content and Overview        This course is fast paced and fluff free.
