DRESS TO IMPRESS: DOES THE ATTIRE STILL MATTER IN YOUR CAREER

Man Wearing Gray Suit

“Fresh to death.”


TWO PIECE WITH A TIE

For the longest, you could not wear certain articles of clothing to work. But in today’s society, the lines have been blurred for what you are allowed to wear. You now see the CEO of the company wearing a sweater, jeans, and sneakers. Case in point, Founder and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg is known for his hoodie and jeans that he wears even in business meetings. So much so, he was criticized for dressing this way when speaking to the government. But you also see the sleeve and neck tattoos sported by the professionals that used to never wear them. You see the doctors, teachers, and even the law enforcement.  This in itself was something that the bad boys did back in the days, now the boys in blue rock the tats.

CASUAL WITH A WINK

I have to make you think for a second. Just because things have gotten lax, does not mean you can show up and do anything you want to do. There are still guidelines regarding the attire. You can’t show up to work like you’re on your way to a nightclub. Because this would be problematic for the organization. So you can be casual, but it’s a business type of casual. Meaning you are to still wear khaki pants and a nice sports shirt with drivers or moccasin shoes. But may I remind you, there are still some places where you cannot be yourself. You have to still follow the traditional guidelines for how one should dress. And there is a reason why you cannot dress a certain way.

THE USUAL COULD BE ENFORCED

Don’t be misled, there are places that still have a strict dress code. Like instance, a school teacher has to think about what they will wear, especially if they are around small children. Kids are like sponges and they will soak up anything in their environment. So you don’t want to wear something that will spark a conversation you don’t want to have with kids.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography since 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my filmmaking.
