You were hired for a reason: Remember, don’t be so hard on yourself. The truth is that out of all of the resumes and profiles, you were picked and hired because your boss wanted you and your input.

As more and more offices relax or remove dress codes, there’s an even greater opportunity to showcase your personal style at work! While a little more freedom in dress at the office is a welcome change for many employees, that doesn’t necessarily mean that jeans every day are the best thing for professional development.
