Christmas Party Time!

Tags: ,
So it's that time of year again-where many of us let our hair down and let loose at the annual office party. This is also the time where many of us loose our opportunity to make a good impression with upper management and even worse-LOOSE OUR JOBS. So before you step out to this year's office party, here's a few tips to help keep us in line.

1. This is not an optional event. One of the biggest errors is not going to an office party. This is a "must-attend" event. So if you do not attend, you show disrespect for your company, your managers and your colleagues. That's a career-killer.

2. Leave your spandex at home! Inappropriate dress at an office party draws attention, unfortunately the wrong kind. The goal is to display professional qualities, not show how trendy or daring you are. Avoid clothing that's too tight or revealing. Yeah, it's a party, but keep in mind, it's an OFFICE party.
3. This is not the time to ask for a promotion. An employee who raises pay or other personal issues at a company party is marked as a person who does not understand what is and is not appropriate at social events. No employer wants that person in charge of others higher up on the corporate ladder.

4. Open bar does not actually mean drink till the cows come home. Drinking to excess at a company party will kill a career instantly. Don't have more than two alcoholic beverages.

5. And please do not get your freak on! I know it is tempting to get on the floor and let loose. Don't forget the boss is watching. Senior managers pay attention to how people handle themselves at corporate events. They might not know your name, but they will remember your face.

Have fun!
