I participated in a national competition with five thousandcontenders when I applied for a position advertised in the Wall Street Journal.The job involved leading banking acquisition seminars and requiredinternational travel. I made the first cut, down to five hundred people. Atthis point I was told that even though my skills were excellent, I did not havethe desired look to represent this company on a worldwide basis. To stay in therunning, I hired Sherry Maysonave to overhaul my image. She knew exactly what Ineeded. In the end, two other finalists and I were invited for a weekend inFlorida. We were told to dress in BusinessCasual attire for most of the events. Thanks to Sherry, I knew what that meantand had several empowering Business Casual outfits from our shopping. I got the job, my dream job, due in largepart to Sherry's expertise.
