Have To Dress Up Well

My new job requires me to meet a lot of people: businessmen, local and national government employees and politicians. I only feel nervous sometimes, since I was not at all used to socializing.

I can honestly say that my former job as a teacher and a school administrator helped a lot in improving my human skills.

Being a manager requires you to be result and human oriented. I am only glad that our boss is approachable enough to assist and support us.

I only have another problem, my closet is simply limited to jeans/slacks and too casual blouses. I wish I can buy elegant, but cheaper apparel for my office wears and buy my mom some kitchen rugs for our home.

I must avoid however, loud colors since that won't be appropriate for an office job, most especially, to a middle manager like me.
