My first “real” job was an entry
level position in a contact center – I was one of a few dozen young
people who sat in a large office floor
taking calls. It was a thankless job but a fun experience overall.
You might be wondering – what does this have to do with first
You see, I was still rather inexperienced at the time, and after
hearing stories from buddies in similar jobs/positions I figured that I
might as well use this opportunity to meet women too.
Office romances... great idea
right? Well, not really, but that’s another story.
Before my first day I went out shopping for clothes. Because this
was my first job with a dress code (no jeans and stuff), I didn’t own
anything remotely passable that wasn’t a suit, and this was by no means
a job worth wearing a suit for.
Even though my dressing sexy skills were far from what they are
today, I was already grasping the basic concepts:
- The clothes need to be cut close to the body to emphasize
- I can subtly use colors to avoid looking boring.
- Showing some skin is a great way to spike sex appeal.
- Grooming matters.
I got myself slim cut grey dress pants, purple buttoned shirt, black
dress shoes, and a black leather belt – solid, professional look.
Because I had that ulterior motive of getting with my new sexy
coworkers, I wore my buttoned shirt with an extra button open and had
my medium length hair styled to something similar to this picture.
Given my agenda, I also tried to have a sexy walk going when passing
the floor to get my coffee.
Considering that most other guys did the bare minimum just to pass
the dress code requirements, I naturally stood out.
For the first week (or was it two weeks...) we, newbies, were
trained separately and only passed the floor where everyone was working
a couple of times a day to get coffee and have lunch.
By the end of the training a few funny things happened:
Both of these things happened despite me saying probably less than
five words (“Good morning”, “Hi”) to people who were working there.
Unsurprisingly, by the end of my first week actually working there,
a cute co-worker approached me during the break to ask for my number
and later asked me out. And during my short time before getting
promoted to another department there been a few other pleasurable
encounters like that.
I’m sharing this to show you how
truly powerful first
and your image can be. Now, as I got wiser, I usually advise
office romances, but we can reap the benefits of the right first
impression in nearly every social situation.
And with this article, I’d like to show you how you can use
specifically clothes and grooming to achieve the first impression of a
