It is now ten weeks on the job for our friend Mallory. She revealed all of her insecurities being at a new job from wardrobe issues to getting along with co-workers. This week she decided to turn her focus to her best friend, Andrea. Here is what she wrote below:
“Since all of my past blogs have been about me and my experience at my new job , I thought this week I should focus on how other people who are just starting out in the workplace are figuring out how to dress for their new jobs. This week, I want to focus on my best friend, Andrea. Andrea is a paralegal who works in downtown Manhattan at a large law firm. Her work attire is very different from mine because her office is all business attire, which consists of having a wardrobe of pantsuits and skirts. She had a good start to building her wardrobe by wearing her skirt and pantsuit and pairing them with different shirts and sweaters. It created new outfits for the week without spending alot of money. Now she has been at the job for a few months and is trying her best not to wear the same outfit constantly! Although I am learning and I am still not an expert in this department by any means.. I told her the first thing I could think of…go to workchic.com! She was really able to get many ideas because the website is specifically designed to make it easy to choose clothing for yourself and your work situation. It was great to help her as much as I could because she really appreciated new ideas and my input on how she could look and feel better at work.”
