Creating a Professional Image: It’s More than Dressing for Success

Your professional image is an essential part of your career search and your subsequent career. Even in an era of largely informal business settings - coffee shop meetings and video conferences - and informal business dress codes - “business casual” and casual Friday - a professional image is still expected.

Your professional image isn’t simply about how you look, however. When you exceed expectations and hit your deadlines, you build up your image. When you miss work, take phone calls during business meetings or gossip about fellow employees you tear it down. In other words, it’s the entire set of impressions that people in the workplace have of you, and it affects how well you will be treated, the responsibilities you will be entrusted with, and your chances for promotion.

Take Steps to Build a Positive Professional Image

Because your professional image is so important and is affected by so many of your actions, it’s worthwhile to know what you can do to create and maintain a great professional image. As you read through these suggestions, it’s helpful to think of the process of building your professional image as personal branding. You’re building your brand, and it’s an important investment in your career.

The Self-Marketing Job Interview: How to Effectively Market Yourself to Your Next Employer

Our newest whitepaper was just added to the Career Transition Toolbox! Join our email list today to gain instant access to our veteran to civilian career resources!

The Self-Marketing Job Interview: How to Effectively Market Yourself to Your Next Employer

Why are job interviews so intimidating? There are many reasons, but here’s a big one: it’s an artificial situation.

Even when an interviewer does her best to put the candidate at ease, the job interview is still an artificial situation. Most job-seekers, who don’t go in with the right mind-set, posture and strategy (and that’s most job seekers), see themselves trapped in an “underdog / overdog” situation. The hiring manager has all the power and the needy applicant is at her mercy. They are unprepared. They don’t know what to expect, and whatever self-confidence they have evaporates completely as soon as the conversation begins. Time to shift your perspective!

Veterans are some of the most sought-after people in the workplace for a number of reasons. Perhaps the three most prominent reasons include their code of ethics, reliability, level of education.
