Defiance is indeed an art form. I personally, have always been attracted to a defiant personality. I like the person that does the opposite of whats asked just to see what happens. Unfortunately, a defiant employee can easily become a defiant unemployee. There’s a huge difference between being defiant and be VOCAL. I am all for being vocal, if you don’t have a voice you may as well not show up. Asking your boss if you could attend a sales meeting you weren’t invited to because you’re trying to learn – that’s being vocal. Even if you’re shot down, you’ve made an impression. Showing up to the meeting without being invited, taking a seat and sipping on your mocha frappucino like no one will notice – that’s being defiant. That’s being an asshole. When you start to develop a reputation of any kind, you get a high. It’s like “people know who I am…this is awesome” and then its easy to exaggerate that “persona” till the wheels fall off. But no one likes a defiant asshole. It’s a fine line between being strong-willed and being defiant but it can make all the difference.

Its The Little Things

8 Aug


So you’ve got the perfect interview outfit, The Row blazer over an Derek Lam shift dress you scored at a sample sale. You’re punctual – 12 minutes early, early enough to show your level of responsibility but not an over eager half hour. Your resume is a high gloss thing of beauty with every reference short of Jesus. But did you remember the little things…
1. Your smell. I’m sure I don’t have to worry about any of your being funky but I have seen (or smelled) many people make scent errors. Do NOT load up on the perfume/cologne. Remember you only smell your fragrance for about 5 minutes after you put it on…the rest of us can smell you.
2. Pronunciation of Names. One of the most embarrassing faux paus can be the mispronunciation of someones name. There’s nothing like finally scoring an interview with Stefano Tonchi and introducing yourself to Mr. Tanchy.
3. Fluff. Please study your own resume. Tell the truth. If you lied on it, remember your lies. Nothing worse than filling in your history and experience with fluff because you can’t remember what you said in your resume.
4. Did you remember your Colgate Wisp? I never leave the house without them. Just like we can smell your perfume when you cant…we can also smell your breakfast.
5. Bring several copies of your resume…a friend of mine once went in for an interview at Lucky Magazine in the beauty department. The editor said she may not have a position but would love to give a copy of her resume to the fashion department. Well…it was her only copy. Her famous last words “I don’t have another one…can I email her??”. She never got that call from the fashion department. Don’t let that horror story happen to you.

FYI…above mentioned friend is now a very successful assistant editor at an awesome publication. She survived.

Holli Rogers is the buying director for Net A Porter. She attends the shows and decides what Net A Porter will retail. So basically its her fault we go on Net A Porter everyday, make fake shopping baskets and cry when we have to delete them…and she looks like this. Awesome.
