WHY CAR HIRE AND GOOD GROOMING BEAT YOUR ACADEMIC PAPERS 10 NILL.| UNEMPLOYED SHOULD READ THIS.
Ever wondered why your mates are looking way too smart, whether official or smart casual but they do dress to kill. Even on a weekend when a pair of dirty jeans and T-Shirts should do, they never forget to piss off the iron box.
You may also wonder why they move from office to office hooting at the parking lot with a brown envelope on the passenger seat. Then from nowhere you will be captivated by their entourage, humble yourself and refer to them as “Tajiri” or even “mdosi”. Little do you get to discover that they are actually the very guys job hunting daily as you.
The difference is that they have found a new way of doing it. They end up faking it till they make it. That car keys of a Lexus or Toyoya TX is by no chance an opportunity to boast around. They grab every moment available to capture attention.
A nice car driven by a man or lady in an expensive suit may get you a pic with a Minister, Governor, Senator, MP, a rich business tycoon or even a split second with the president. This could mean a referral or even a job if you are smart enough in the head too.
Savings are very helpful especially if they are enough to get you a cool car from a car hire company. A nice suit will do you good and one more thing,remember to walk and talk rich because the blessed in society do not have much time hanging out with the sufferers as they are called.
Spray a lillte bit of perfume if you are a fragrance person, or rather if you are the allergic type just remember not to smell bad odour, call it sweat.
When you look rich you will hardly be asked questions like, “who has sent you”. Your papers will be perused so quick and a valid response given to you without a second thought.
There is no more sympathy left in the world of job hunting. Some good English or swahili is not enough. You need to impress even before you open your mouth. Too bad if you have a smelling breath. One more reason to perhaps befriend your local dentist or spare some coins for chewing gum.
Going for some cheap “mtumba” shirt and pants is actually not a very bad idea. They say live according to your means. However what if you made just some little adjustment to your wardrobe.
People out here will judge you according to first impression. How you arrive and most importantly how you dress. They will spare you some minutes if you are worth it. Other CEO’s or bosses will see you in the cctv approaching their office and they will instruct their secretaries to lock you out if you do not look appealing.
Narrations of a poor background and sad series of events growing up has lost relevance. They are better left to be told after you have made it in life. You therefore owe no one an apology faking it since its one perfect way of nearing success.
Lastly, dressing well and arriving in style at an event full of high end guests and dignitaries will allow you to mingle and exchange contacts. You will not be mistaken for a begger or pickpocketer.
Security will have no reasons to mark you and if you play the script so well, personalities won’t mind sharing their business cards with you. They may extend their kindness by inviting you to their online forums and before you know it, your unuseful friends will be disappearing from your phone book.
Sooner or later you should be skipping booze for expensive bottles of wine and that kibandaski lady who is used to serving you ugali mix and matumbo special will be so eager to see you again. Secret is in your first impression. Change a few bad social lifestyle habits if you can. Discuss women and football with limits. How you took one-two-many bottles of whysky last night should not be a story to carry to a table of investment ideas.
