Dear Feeba,
I think its just your fillings that you looks very simple, every person in this world is special and have a different-2 qulity, you can't change your natural look and if we talk about your language if your comunication skill is nice then don't wory about that after a time both would be changed.
Have a nice day & best of luck !!

Looking very simple is not a problem , when you have substance but looking bombastic without substance is a problem beacuse they are actors. All great men from Mahatma Gandhi to Mother Therisa look very simple but invoke huge respect from society beacuse they are performers. Looks cannot convert one from actor to performer but knowledge, skills and talent do.. So be proud of your simple looks. You may feel uncomfortable if you act to be some one but you. Don't get unduly worried about your looks but focus on acquiring knowledge and skills and polish your communication skills, if that is what is making you difficult in presenting things an dyou will find that things around you start changing.

Hey Feeba,

It is very tough to be simple.Not every genius can do it.I don't know about looks but what I can sense here is a desire to appear a professional,smart and a capable person.Right?

Guess as far as appearances are concerned that can be changed - not necessarily by buying the best of brand but by assuring that whatever you will should look clean,smart crisp and fresh-be it your dress or your make up(I don't know if it is applicable here?Yr profile is not clear on gender).In dress if cool with western also that is also good but otherwise even ethnic is also great.But remember nothing loud-nothing extravagant,emphasis should be to stay simple.For inspiration movies like corporate, Fashion are a good idea to watch.

But all this is merely a background-the real thing will be the work you do and the kind of talk u do-here u will have to deliver.Without results no impressions.The reason being simple enough-you have been hired to do a job!so keep your focus there- that is what will actually make u a professional.

With reference my C.V , previously I was working with Pathfinder International, New Delhi as a “Human Resource &Administrative Officer”.

Currently I am not working and open for the position of "Human Resource and Administration", in any sector.

Relevance with the Human Resource position:

I have handled the responsibility of conceptualizing and implementing the Human Resource and was responsible to plan, develop and implement strategy for HR management and development recruitment and selection policy/practices, discipline, grievance, counseling, benefits, contracts, training and development, succession planning, moral and motivation, culture and attitude development, performance appraisal and quality management issues.

My academic and professional background of Human Resource Development i.e MBA from Indian Institute of Planning and Management and my active involvement in the NGO & Private sector , since past 4 and half years has given me an intellectual understanding and sensitized me towards the issues faced by Human Resource department in any sector.

Dear Deepak
Thank you for the eye opener on etiquette.
I notice that it is more about the 'western' etiquette.
Am interested to know if there any that refer to the Indian one. Perhaps you can provide some input from this perspective?
Once a gain thank you.

Dear Feeba.

Others have given good ideas based on limited information about yourself and the scenario. Hence, let me raise my questions as I am not clear about certain things. Please answer the following.

"What do you mean by " ..good enough theoretically"?

Also, what is meant by "look very simple"? Could you kindly tell us what you wear now and what the new appearance will be like?

Corporate culture varies from organisation to organisation and the country where it is located. When I was in industry as an Industrial Engineer, I was supposed to wear a suit and tie all the time at work. When I went into academia some wore suits and others (especially, sports teachers) came in shorts or jeans. But they were not considered as unprofessional.

Also, in the UK, the culture is no one discusses the pay and bonus one gets. But, I was told that in States people discuss it freely (I have no first hand knowledge). In the UK, I had to address some bosses as Mr.xx. Where as in acdemia, I addressed the Vice Chancellor by his first name. Same goes for different ways of addressing in different countries. My students in the UK addressed me by first name; even some senior people at CiteHR address me as "Sir", even after I tell them that they can address me by my name. However, some youngsters who probably work for American firms, address people at CiteHR as "dudes".

Hence, kindly give more information to help the experts to give precise answers.

Dear nashbramhall Sir,

Thank you for your response.

HR is the one who should interact with lot many people right. The appearance and the way of presentation plays a major role while interacting with the people. The corporate culture which i am speaking about needs fast, trendy and innovative presentation.

I am lacking all these, I worked with a company where i used to communicate with the clients through phone. But in my present job i have meet clients and communicate with them.

I believe the First impression is the best impression right!

I am feeling inferior infront of the clients, because they observe every thing, my body language, my comm skills and my appearance.

One of my friend who is working with one of the MNC company in Hyderabad, Suggested me to change And to adopt the corporate culture. As my appearance and my way of handling the employee is like informal it seems.

In my MBA i never had come across all these, feeling like i am lacking some where

So i specified that "Good enough theoretically, look very simple"

If Possible Suggest me, It will help me in my career
