i recently read kelly cutrone’s, ”if you have to cry go outside”, for the 2nd time. it’s an insightful read for those entering the fashion biz as interns or new employees.
i wanted to share 3 of her top 10 career don’ts (or how not to get a career in fashion) with you as these ones resonnated with me the most and i think can apply to any job, not just in fashion:
1. don’t recreate your family at work
2. don’t think your boss owes you anything but a paycheck; and
3. don’t cry in the office. ever. if you have to cry go outside.
that is some solid career advice right there! i’ve known people who have broken all these rules (and some) and believe me when i say it’s never pretty – it’s really downright painful to watch.
always remember while at work, whether in fashion or whereever your career happens to find you, you’re in a place of ‘business’ and you should not only dress but also act accordingly.
