How To Get Hired

By now, everyone's pretty aware that the job market is b-l-e-a-k. You don't have to turn on CNN to know that new positions are hard to come by, and companies are downsizing left and right. Therefore it should come as no surprise that searching for work is more competitive than ever with a ton of talented people vying for the same jobs. Because of this unfortunate fact, word on the (Wall) street is that employers are so inundated with highly qualified applicants, that they look for the tiniest slip-ups to make the process of elimination easier. Yikes.

If you've been hitting the proverbial pavement looking for a job because you've been laid-off, want to jumpstart your career, find a new career path or have decided to head back into the workforce after baby number two, you're not alone. And because of how "not alone" you are in your job search, just getting an interview is hard enough. For that reason, it's imperative that on the big day, you not only have the right chops for your desired profession (that's all on you btw), you also need to look like the best candidate for the job. That's where we come in.

We believe that beauty products (especially makeup) were put on this earth to help us all look fab. (It's amazing how the right makeup and hairstyle can give you immediate confidence.) Plus, there's no doubt that the way we look dictates how people perceive us. Remember the old saying, "you never get a second chance to make a first impression"? Well nothing could be truer of the interview process, which is why now is the time to up your game so that potential employers have no excuse not to hire you. One makeup shade too bright and it could be "thanks, but no thanks.

"To find out what looks can help and hinder your chances of landing your dream job (or even that basic job to pay the bills), we went to the experts: Dr. Lois Frankel, author of "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office," Jerami Brown from the Paul Labrecque Salon in New York City and celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. They explain how to do your hair, makeup and more for any interview. With their expert tips you won't be counted out because of your makeup or hairstyle choices.
