Polish Your Image

Putting on the Polish
Malet-Veale
1993

Image enhancement is probably a good topic for a library collection. Almost all the job hunting books out there will discuss this issue. Dating books, etiquette materials, and other social type of activities often touch on this issue as well. The premise of this book is that how you present yourself is critical to both your business and personal life.

The information is weighted more for women than the information for men. Lots of makeup and hair tips for the ladies. I get the feeling if men simply got a haircut and combed their hair, they would knock that image out of the park.

I will also throw out for discussion that image issues in COVID driven workplace might make many of the job prep resources obsolete. Example: Interviewing via Zoom vs live. People, adjust that lighting and make sure you aren’t accidentally showing something distracting in the background.
