Fashion Career Change Tips: How to Dress for Jobs in Creative Fields

Since I launched my Gen X career coaching firm, I have found that more than 97.9% of my clients (i.e. practically everyone) wants to transition from working in traditional careers where black suits are the norm to more “creative” jobs where bright colors and witty t-shirts rule. Yes, it’s been wild that no one has said, Melissa – I really want to go from being a video gamer to an attorney. Does this surprise you? Not me!

Watch my interview with Mercedes Sanchez – the Beauty Expert from the Trend Trio from Have You Tried This Yet? P&G Program. A firsthand career changer herself from politics to fashion/beauty, she tells us the dos and don’ts around making a wardrobe transition.

About Melissa

As a career coach, my plan is to share what I have learned from having: dissected 1,000+ performance evaluations, reported to 20+ bosses, lived in 7 zip codes, worked in 2 foreign countries, transitioned directly from financial services to advertising, started a career coaching firm as a newbie mom, coached lawyers that no longer desired to practice law, helped a plethora of clients with compelling raw materials yet lackluster interview performance skills, earned 2 full rides to top academic institutions, and left law school.
