Dress code has always played an important role in both, doing business and job interviews. Whereas traditionally these codes have been strictly followed, nowadays more and more people cross some limits and new trends come out. In this ever changing world choosing the right style has become more and more difficult. 

Today we have the advice of Caleb Wells, Visual Consultant for T.M. Lewin. Since its beginning in Jermyn Street in 1898, T.M. Lewin has become famous for having the first coat shirt to feature buttons down the whole length of the front.  Fashions may have changed since then, but excellent craftsmanship, quality, service and value remain the unique features of the brand.

How can dress code help you to get a job?

Research has shown how crucial the first 10 – 40 seconds of your introduction are. 90% of people form their opinion about you within this time.  Besides, some experiments conducted by psychologists at Princeton University state a tenth of a second is enough for someone to form an impression of a stranger (and just based on their faces!).

Infographic | Getting to Know Your Indian Colleagues

We heard you have an Indian colleague!

Geographically, India and the United Kingdom are thousands of kilometres apart. Historically, they’ve always had a close, somewhat turbulent relationship. However, forgetting the past, we’ve become a blend of cultures and traditions, welcoming new ideas and embracing diversity. In the UK today, Indians and British Indians make up for 1.4 million of the UK population, the largest minority group in the country.

If you’ve ever been to London, you’ve probably had some of the best curry in your life. I didn’t know what a Poppadum was until a friend took me to Brick Lane and since that first crisp I’ve never looked back. But what about within the workforce?

Getting to Know Your Indian Colleagues 

Getting to know your foreign colleagues is an essential part of building a team relationship and working together. Here’s what to expect from your Indian colleagues.

 Getting to know your Indian colleagues

In the end, we’re not as different as we think. When working with someone from another country, it’s important to understand their background. Take the time to get to know your colleagues, both local and international.
