Becoming a new graduate can come with a lot of worries. You'll wonder where you will work first, if the major you chose was right for you after all, or how you'll go about paying off the immense amount of college debt you've stacked up. Luckily with this webinar, one thing you'll never have to worry about is looking your best at work. We want you to look good and feel good about life after college. As a recent grad, it can be difficult to justify spending the little money you have on "boring" work attire. But here's some news for you: It doesn't (and SHOULDN'T) have to be boring - or expensive. In this webinar, we'll cover some of the major fashion concerns of recent grads, and provide some easy solutions.

Top 3 Fashion Concerns of Recent Grads:

  1. Building professional wear but still looking fashionable and not boring
  2. Finding clothes you can wear to work and easily go out in afterwards
  3. Knowing how work pants and skirts should fit that would be considered professional

Dressing professional while still looking fashionable has it's few tricks, but is definitely not as hard as it may seem. Thankfully, Ashley Poulin of Sharpheels.com (a hot new fashion site!), has some awesome pointers for you in her upcoming webinar, "Fashion Relief for the Newly Graduated."

Learn how to land a career you love


Everyone needs to feel their voice is heard and their contributions are important. Something as simple as sharing a drink the last hour of the day on a Friday with the team to recap wins and give praise can build camaraderie within the team.


All of the above are fairly simple to implement but can make a huge difference in morale and motivation. Have any of these tips worked well for young the past? Do you have other tips to motivate your creative team? If so, please share them with me!

Encourage curiosity. Spark debate. Stimulate creativity and your team will be better at handling challenges with flexibility and resourcefulness. Create a safe space for ideas, all ideas, to be heard. In ideation, we need the weird and off-the-wall ideas to spur us on to push through to the great ideas.

Sure, there are a ton of studies done on this, but here is my very unscientific personal take. When team members can make decisions about how they work on projects, they are more engaged and connected to the project outcome. When they see how potentially dropping the ball would affect the entire team, they step up. When they feel like what they are doing is impactful and valued, they are naturally motivated to learn more, and be even better team members.

Rarely does a one-size-fits-all style work when it comes to team motivation. I have found that aligning employee goals with organization goals works well. Taking time to get to know everyone on your team is invaluable. What parts of their job do they love? What do they not enjoy? What skills do they want to learn? Even going so far as to where they see themselves in five years career-wise. These questions help you right-fit projects, and help your team see you are committed to creating a career path for them within the company.

Most designers I know love a good challenge. We are problem solvers by nature. Consistently give yourself and your team small challenges, both design-related and not. It will promote openness within the team to collaborate, and it will help generate ideas faster in the long run. Whether the challenge is to find a more exciting way to present an idea to stakeholders or fitting a new tool into the budget, make it a challenge just to shake things up.
