Defiance

10 Aug

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.

Who Are “The Kids” and Why Are They Alright

25 Jul

The kids are all the junior level fashion industry players. The interns, the assistants, the coordinators, junior “fill in the blanks”. Read more about what this group is all about here.

How It Works: The plan for this group is to gather the industry’s youngest and brightest at what are sure to be legendary KAA Mixers. The KAA Mixers will be held weekly at some of the city’s best venues that are providing the gang with drink and/or food specials for the night. Once you register for this group here you will be approved and recieve weekly email updates including invites to each upcoming mixer! Once you RSVP and cover the entry fee (never more than $10 bucks) you will be added to the guest list. Once you get there we will check you off and give your customized tag so people can walk right up to you and know your story. Come, drink, be merry and charm the room. Make business connections and friends that can last a lifetime.

The plan for this blog is to be your one stop resource for planning and living your future in this business. Everyday expect something new; Job and Internship postings, Workplace Q&A’s, Fashion advice, Event listings (not just our events), After work venues listings and tons of other thoroughly useful resources.
