Career Tips for Women # 17

Drop the Bag!

This is a tip I picked up from reading ‘The Female Advantage‘ by Sally Helgesen.

If you are going to a work related social or networking event do not lug a huge bag around with you. It’ll get on your nerves as you try to juggle drinks, nibbles and handshakes and doesn’t contribute to an overall picture of being in control.

Instead, leave it in a safe place and glide serenely through the event unencumbered, looking as if you have no need of massive hand baggage: you’re confident enough not to need props and baggage.

Could you survive an event without your handbag?
