Hi fishers, I got an offer to work as a Marketing Manager in a bank. This is my I was first working in-house. Do people usually dress up in the office? Any guidelines for women/men?

Financial sector tends to be more conservative and traditional-so, I would recommend dressing up. Trousers (not dark jeans) or a skirt, too can be a sleek body suit, or blouse (recommend covered shoulders). Nice shoes (don’t have to be heels but shouldn’t be sneakers).

I’d go with that the first week while you get a feel for what others wear then navigate from there.

When is it a good time to start looking for a new job? This is still my first career job out of college. I have been here for 3 years now. The opportunities are great I love my company, the people I work with, the work life balance... however, the salary is slightly lacking (or am I wrong?). I have asked for salary raises, the most recent one was 9%, the other years the typical 2-4%. But, I’ve been seeing entry level right from college make as much as me now. Any advice or thoughts?

PSA: didn’t think anyone needed to hear this, but apparently many do. When you’re interviewing for a job you actually want, and the interviewer asks if you have any questions for them at the end, have questions ready, and legitimate ones. It’s a really bad look when candidates say “no I don’t have any questions,” or they ask something incredibly stupid like “what cool swag do you get?”
