How to people manage in the real world?
Okay, so I am interning for the dietitian at Lowes Food and I feel the need to look put together. I am trying to make an impression here, people. Every little bit counts.
Well, I French braided my hair because I didn’t have time to let it dry, and there are random bits of hair sticking out. And my [mint] nail polish is chipping and my [glitter] makeup is smearing around because its 95°F outside.
So my question is: how do people do it in the real world? How do they manage to get up, shower, do their hair and makeup, trim and manicure their nails, wear the right clothes, and look so put together all the time? I need a total wardrobe makeover for that because the shorts in my closet and the tank tops – there ain’t nothing professional about that.
Hello, grad-school-in-one-month. Maybe you will give me some tidbits for how to build a résumé, dress appropriately, and portray charisma through interviews.
