Look Like a Boss this Holiday Season

Looking good during the holiday season might not seem important, but if you are hoping to move up in the company, remember that employers often make critical decisions about enlarging their staff, adding new departments, and making promotions at the end of the year.  If the company’s finances can support growth, those who worked hard to foster that growth are probably in the running to take on new leadership as supervisors, assistant managers, or department heads.  Although many employees delay taking time off, staying put during the holidays might be a wise decision if you think you have a chance at moving up.  Often, top executives visit branch offices and want to meet potential candidates, or the new wunderkind they’ve heard so much about.  If you’ve been given exemplary remarks on your last reviews, or have saved the company money with a shortcut, or devised a way to shave time off production, you might want to spruce up your wardrobe and get ready to lunch with the top brass.

During the holidays, there are tons of sales, mark downs and discounts offered by retailers who make most of their annual revenue during the holiday season.  A store like New York & Company is a good example of this.  They are offering deep discounts on their fabulous women’s apparel and accessories that you can buy using Groupon coupon codes. You can save on skirts, pants, suits, and sweaters by entering a code at check out, and you don’t even have to leave your busy desk to shop.  They have a large selection to choose from for you or those on your shopping list.  In addition to the stylish separates they stock, you can find exclusive designs in the Eve Mendes line, and hot new looks from Gabrielle Union.  After all, all work and no play make Jackie a dull girl.  When it’s time to kick up your heels, you’ll have lots to choose from including sexy peep-toe booties and pom-pom pumps.  And if you’re looking for stocking stuffers or a neat gift for the Secret Santa exchange, you’ll find plenty of items to choose from online or instore at New York & Co.

Don’t let someone else get credit for the hard work you’ve put in this year.  If there’s a chance you’ll get to break through the glass ceiling this year, make sure you do it like a boss.
