How to be prepared – Preparation is key in most aspects of our lives but especially when it comes to work. When making a good impression, it is important to be one step ahead to give you the best chance of success. This can be anything from getting your bag packed the night before to making sure you’ve got your ticket for your train to London. Preparedness can avoid stressful situations occurring and that is so important.

How to dress for the job you want – Dressing for a new job is dependant on your place of work and their dress code. However, the most important element of dressing for a new job is to feel good in the clothes you’re in because, if you don’t, it will show. You want to walk into your new workplace feeling the best version of yourself and show people you mean business. There is a lot of conversation around what people should wear in the workplace but the truth of the matter is that if you feel good, show your personality, and exude confidence – you will make an impression. How to Achieve What You Need at Work How to ask for a pay rise – So, you have been in your job a while now and feel you are overworked, overqualified, and underpaid for the role you are in – but how do you ask for a pay rise? The first step is to be prepared. You need to be ready for this conversation with examples of exemplary work, performance data, and your own value to the company – if you don’t sell your worth, no one will do it for you.
