We’ve all had our chance or longed for the opportunity to speak with a colleague or executive who holds the ideal position we wish to occupy in the future. And the opportunity to meet and ask questions to understand if they had a similar path as us and faced the same struggles and overcame them is priceless.

Knowing I have been in this same situation myself, here is a meaningful tip, while short, can be helpful in a huge way.

Don’t Overdress, study their Dress Style

The important thing to be mindful of is to study your subject, the person you want to become who holds the ideal position you wish to have.

Study their dress style to emulate their style so you are not over dressing and your style choice causes slight disengagement or overpowers the conversation instead of what you are communicating.

Doing so, the person can easily see themselves in you and recognize you are serious in learning and taking the necessary steps to grow.

Keep it Simple & Dress the Part

Keep it simple by wearing limited jewelry and a simple dress or style choice that compliments your style but doesn’t distract from the point of the meeting.

The ultimate goal is to have a meaningful discussion and make a long lasting impression. Dressing the part is one step closer to putting your best foot forward.
