Here are a few highlights from our conversation:
-Best professional looks for the summer especially the interview
-Layer and dress for comfort
-Think light, patterns, a little jewelry
-Men well groomed, beard trimmed, nails manicured, and shirts tucked in
-Men must be sure the half-shaved look is good for the interview. Authenticity is important, but when in doubt
-For women, grooming is as important as clothes
-Humid temperatures need adjustments in office wear
-What to have for the ever-changing weather — sunny to rain to 100% humidity in some places–and keep it professional and on-brand
–Best shoe wears for rainy weather
-Rain boots are essential and more professional
-Arrive early to transition from outside wear
-Trench coat is classic, polished, and professional to maintain day look
-Umbrella quality is necessary, worth the investment and show personality

I will not publish a show on the week of July 4. Please enjoy the catalog available on iTunes and many other podcast directories.
Don’t forget the last show for the season is July 26, and the new one will begin on Sept. 6. I will be publishing new articles (up to 3x a week) on the blog. If you’re a career pro and love giving career advice, let me know. I would love to have more guest writers during my hiatus and beyond.
