Today, what with baseball season getting ready to swing into full gear soon, I proudly present you with a Dear CV Double Header.
I’m in another dilemma! A colleague an I are traveling today. We are meting with a board of directors in the morning. My colleague dresses a bit risqué at the office. I have been assigned the unpleasant task of making sure she dresses appropriately? Help!
Welcome back and thanks for sending in another question. Your name is clearly accurate as you seem to have quite a few
problems challenges opportunities? Anyway, despite not having a lick of therapy training (although many say I should go to therapy), I’m here to assist.
An interesting dilemma. While in general I am in favor of suggestive dress (duh, I am a guy), like most things, there is a time and a place. I say you nip this one in the bud (ha ha I said nip) and tell her straight up that she needs to dress classy business professional, however she should also not hide that she’s a lady. Dressing risqué may help her cause in the short run as the board will only be thinking of one thing. After all, showing a little skin often gets a lady what she wants in this world.
Now hang on all you fem-nazi’s who are clicking madly getting ready to send hate-mails to me. Please wait. I didn’t say it was right, nor do I encourage it (at work), but it’s a fact that it’s generally a male dominated work world. It’s unfortunate really.
So, tell her to dress like a lady. Leave them with the impression that not only is she a lady, but she is one helluva smart one. THAT will get her to places far better than showing skin will.
I hope this helps. BTW as a guy, trust me on this. There is nothing hotter than a highly confident, smart, professionally dressed lady. Trust me.
The copier beeping is the exact same frequency as my alarm clock. My poor brain can’t handle it. Any suggestions?
Hi Hot Girl…how you doin? I seem to have found a niche in blog readers here. (focus CV)…
Honestly, this is an easy one. A well placed letter opener shoved firmly into the little speaker slot on the copier (no do not shove into your ear) will take care of the lickity split.
As for the alarm clock. That’s all part of growing up unfortunately. However, there is a solution. I have an app Nightstand which has a very please set of audible alarms. I’m a big fan of “Birds” because it reminds me of spring and summer. Flowing water is nice, but in the morning it will make you really have to pee (and you all know from yesterday’s post that I have bathroom issues).
