Applying for a job can be stressful as there are a lot of things you need to get done in order to attain the job you want. You need to first apply for the jobs you want with a good rewrite CV.

Now what to look for when choosing professional work wear.
The Many Donts of Professionalism
A big don’t of professional wear is to have armpits unshaven and exposed.
This is a big no in a lot of industries especially the food industry when hair is a big NO. Most if not all formal professions this is not allowed. I do not encourage it.
Tight, short or revealing
Now a lot of professional wear has a body fitting design which is in co-ordinance with the slim fit dynamic, your clothing can be close fitting but not skin tight or bodycon, or latex.
Now I know these types of dresses with low necklines can be more appealing to the eyes and seem like a better option to falter your figure. Keep in mind if it is appealing or faltering it is a no. Cleavage showing a no.
Too Trendy or bright neon Colors
This is true for both makeup and clothing. You want to appear as neutral as possible. white, black, beige, gray and other dull colors are encouraged.
I know a lot of women who had to learn the hard the way that multiple piercings were no in professional work as well as the elaborate hoops and dangling earrings.
Keep in mind you are to meet the boss or rather the person who is to determine whether or not you will get the job so the first impression should be your very best. Take care to avoid Jeans, shorts, and khakis.
I for one love sweet fragrances, however, I have to be mindful of what I do and how much I use it. For there are persons who are allergic, or otherwise sensitive to strong smells.
DO’s of Professionalism
Neat Hair and Out of Face
I find that catching your hair at you nape a suitable professional option a well as a simple bun is a great option.
Well tailored suit, jackets, slacks, skirt, pants or dresses
Keep in mind that all skirts should be at or below the knee in length. They should be conservative in color navy or black. Pantyhose should be without runs or tears. Bring an extra pair in case you need to change.
Your makeup should be minimal and conservative like the rest of your attire, no neon colors or extravagant designs or decorations. Your makeup should be neutral and natural colors.
Light briefcase or Profolio Case
What better way to show you are ready if you do not show up prepared?
A closed toe polished heels basic pumps 1-2″ in height low to mid heel.
