7 Strategic Ways To Accelerate Your Income
Right or wrong, your image does count in cold hard cash when it comes to your career. The following 7 points will lead you in the right direction on how to improve your image to climb the ladder to success, or to be the person they call for the position you applied for.
Recent studies have shown that appearance counts when it comes to receiving higher salaries. Identical resumes were sent to recruiters, accompanied by different photographs of the supposed interviewee. Starting salaries proposed ranged between 8 to 20% higher when the image presented by the interviewee was professional and well groomed over the same interviewee that looked mediocre.
The most important factor in Dressing Professionally is appropriateness.
Relevance shows that the wearer understands what level of dress is most suited to their:
- Business occasion
- Figure type
- Message wanting to transmit
“Dress and act for the career you want, not the one you are in”
People you meet will automatically accept the role that YOU have packaged for yourself. Realising you can control the opinions of others is the first step in gaining a credible and professional image, especially concerning what they think you are capable.
4. Dressing to win
You are setting an emotional and physical climate for success. People see your image long before they know the wonderful person inside. Dressing well makes people stop and take notice, thus affording you the added advantage of the time to prove your worth.
A positive image will open doors for you in the first 7 seconds of meeting, creating a huge advantage for you.
6. You never receive a second chance
Judgments we make with someone on the first encounter are very powerful and extremely difficult to change. At any initial meeting, we tend to treat others as objects, placing emphasis on how they look and sound.
Choose your stereotype carefully. Ask yourself what the characteristics associated with the image you want to project are?
When you have the right image and the knowledge to apply this information every day changes many aspects of your life.
