1st Impressions…

Reading The Metro on the train this morning, there was a small piece on a group supporting offenders completing their sentence to be given a £1K package to include grooming costs, clothes etc to enable them to make a great 1st impression when meeting prospective employers.

 

A great idea.  But are 1st impressions still appropriate?

 

I’ve noticed more and more, in the corporate world especially, how dress code has changed to become almost non-existent.

 

It almost seems unacceptable now to give personal image guidance to increase someone’s chances of making a great 1st impression.

 

I hope the group trying to support the offenders are successful.  People leaving prison clearly have a number of hurdles to get over if they are going to make a successful transition.

 

Personally, I know that I perform more confidently if I’m dressed appropriately for the situation/event.

 

So just how important is ‘dress to impress’ ‘no 2nd chance at a 1st impression’ now?

 

What do you think?……….
