From Classroom to Career


This week The Image Builders are presenting to two separate groups of university students. One presentation will offer guidance on managing one’s image while transitioning from student to career professional. The other session will focus on corporate dining etiquette and will take the form of an active tutorial over dinner. University graduation is an exciting time in a person’s life but can lead to anxiety as one seeks his or her way in an unfamiliar career and corporate culture. Preparation is the key and we always enjoy our role in providing some level of confidence to these initiates to the world of business.

Here are a few quick tips we will be sharing:

  • Never underestimate the power of first impressions.  A first impression is made within seconds and is very rarely reversed.
  • Tune into the news of the day; even the most trivial stories can help one become an interesting conversationalist.
  • Be true to your style but be sure your clothes are appropriate for the occasion and are not upstaging your message or personality.
  • Spilled on your boss? Any awkward moments are a test of character and your reaction will be observed as such.
  • The more important the message, the less technical your communication choice should be. Most important? Take the time to meet someone in person. Don’t rely on a text to address an emotional or complicated issue.
