Ring in the New Year by helping the economy and furthering your career
Are you tired of reading and hearing about the economic doom and gloom that will get worse? I know we cannot brush it aside but by making small changes to our every day spending it means we can spend on shoes, coats, dresses- yes I know this sounds crazy! Putting yourself out there in the job market requires not only a CV to be polished, attractive and with good content but how we present ourselves is key. It may be surprising to some, to others not, but employers do want to see well presented candidates. That does not mean designer this, designer that, but someone who has taken care of their personal appearance from clean clothes to polished shoes shows that there is a pride and care taken in presentation. If you were lucky enough to get some ££ as gifts, check out the really good sales around. Replace those worn out shoes if you can and as many magazines and TV programmes are suggesting 'negotiate' a price. This really does work if the item you are after is still sitting in a shop- make an offer. Spruce up your CVs and spruce up yourself…because you're worth it.
