What Should I NEVER Wear to My Entry-Level Job?

Why not?

Baseball caps, beanies, berets, newsboy caps – all great fashion statements, but not at the office. Unless you work outdoors and need to shield your face from the sun or stay warm, hats are going to give the impression that you’re shifty and untrustworthy because you’re hiding your eyes and face.

Try me instead:

Hats usually are worn to cover up a bad hair day. There’s a miracle product called dry shampoo; you spray it in and it looks like you showered. Look into it!

The Exception

Baseball players, cowboys, newsies.
