A close friend of mine is a flight attendant.  She was asked for some interview tips from a young person who was about to attend her interview for the same airline.  As I was going over her response text, I thought the ideas she was sharing would be great for anyone embarking on a job interview.  Her text went as follows: This industry is very competitive.  Look the part.  Wear a professional outfit.  No jeans or low-cut tops.  If you have long hair, wear it up and out of your face.  Your make up should

I just got back from a lifetime vacation to 3 Disney parks in Florida and a Disney cruise.  I’ve done Disney before and my sister used to be a Disney Cast Member. I also prepared a final project on Employee Retention for a Graduate Certificate course based on Disney values so I feel like I know something about Disney.  Having just spent the most wonderful 2 weeks immersed in Disney culture, it gave me the opportunity to hold a magnifying glass to the practices that make Disney such a preferred

We all have those days where we wake up and the thought of leaving the comfort of our cozy beds is unthinkable.  Laying quasi-awake anticipating the day, you have to make the decision of what you will wear and that just makes the bed that much more appealing.  The choice to wear the “old stand-by” comfortable or familiar outfit, is the easiest one.  It isn’t a “power suit”, it doesn’t have a statement, no one typically comments on it ever but it gets you by when you don’t feel you

  I’ve been working for many (many, many) years towards getting a business off the ground. The vision began with a joke between a friend of mine and myself. We were both career counsellors at an employment agency and were commenting on the need for some of our clients to understand the importance of their attitude, wardrobe, manners and behaviour choices. We thought it would be funny to have our own etiquette business to teach these necessary but absent skills. After some time and several clients later, I began to

Whether we like it or not, agree with it or not, judgments will be made about us. If we do not take into consideration how we look or act, these judgments may not be in our favour. Furthermore, these assumptions may not only be made about us but could be made about our positions, our departments and/or the organizations we work for. Therefore, it is very important to put thoughtful consideration into our appearance and behaviour.

Some people just stand out. At the grocery store, maybe it’s that one cashier that you always go to, or the guy in the suit standing next to you in line at the bank machine. For whatever reason, some people just “catch our eye”. What is about them? Are you one of those people? Not sure? Here are some things to consider if you want to “get noticed”: 1.
