10 tips from the star reporter for successful women

In her opinion, what counts in the job above all the external effect, the famous first impression - and there everyone can do something even with a few tricks. What advice does she give to successful women? An overview of their theses:

  1. Maintain your personal brand. Your personal brand - your BrandYou - is in your perception by others. So find out more about your image: Search yourself through search engines like Google or Bing. So you will learn what is said about you and what image you present to potential employers on the net.
  2. You are unique. You have a unique set of character traits and abilities. Whether you are a permanent employee or not, you are always marketing yourself like an independent entrepreneur who has to maintain your company name. This will help you in the professional environment - and do not forget, the best time to look for a new job is when you already have a job.
  3. Clothes that you like make you look more confident. It's more important to dress than to find your own style and to feel comfortable in your clothes - this makes you feel more confident.
  4. Talk to other successful women. The word "Network“Is on everyone's lips, but what does that actually mean? In my opinion, it means talking to a lot of interesting women. Women are still far too cautious when it comes to making contacts. But with whom one can better about the career and the professional development speak, as with other successful women?
  5. Imitate successful women. Work on your own style, but watch other women as well. Try to understand the qualities of successful women and think about how to build and use similar qualities.
  6. The first impression counts. Most of the people have already formed an opinion about you before they have spoken their first word with you. So think in advance how your counterpart should perceive you. Dress appropriately, but at the same time that it still corresponds to your personal style - you have to feel good in your clothes! These include, for example, a discreet make-up and not too high heels. By the way, most people pay attention to shoes: make sure you wear well-groomed shoes. All these little things add to your overall picture - and that's more important than your business card.
  7. Talk about your motivations and Motivation. There are more and more opportunities to exchange ideas and to networks. So don't waste time at events and talk about yourself, your skills and your motivation. This can open up new paths for you and help to improve your dream job to find. Remember, however, that the conversation shouldn't be one-sided: Try to find out the same about the people you're talking to.
  8. Put your strengths in the foreground. Think about what you do well, what you like and what you are proud of. Make a list of these items - all events since you were ten years old. We do not fundamentally change after our childhood. But women in particular have a tendency to focus on the negative aspects of our personality. The list will help you to see you and the world with more positive eyes.
  9. Your profile photo should look professional, but alive. Use social networks as yours Curriculum vitae on the Internet, where you can collect all information about your professional career and experiences. Make sure you are using a professional, but vivid looking photo. Private photos, photos with headgear or photos from your last vacation are not suitable.
  10. Maintain your contacts. Business networks like Xing or LinkedIn can help you track the activity of your contacts. You will be notified of status updates and receive a weekly newsletter listing all the changes to your contacts. Use the information to send a short message to acquaintances who have been promoted or who have a new job - the ideal way to stay in touch!

    Dear Mrs. Westphal,
    thank you for the hint. Would you like to explain this to me, also by e-mail, a bit more detailed because I am researching on the topic. My article about the unaccessibility you have, as I saw via Twitter, already found.
    Regards
    Simone Janson

  6. Angelika Westphal says:

    It's very interesting. I will certainly remember a lot of it. What is still particularly difficult for me is this: to be “present” in the network or to maintain contacts through it. A master has not yet fallen from the sky.
