What to wear to work is an important and often discussed topic here on YLF. Questions about exactly how to interpret different dress codes for the office and threads about outfit suggestions for job interviews, first day in a new work environment and remarks from colleagues that have struck a cord abound.

Feeling confident about yourself and how you come across to potential clients or employers both play a vital role in today’s professional world. So does networking, a career aspect that job matching engine Monster.com specializes in:

“To help young job seekers make the right connections when they don’t already have an established network of professional contacts, Monster.com created BeKnown, an app that taps into the connections of their Facebook friends and allows them to easily connect, send messages, and see who among their existing contacts is connected to a company or job opportunity they are interested in.”


To celebrate the recent launch of the iPhone and Android version of their professional networking app, Monster.com is very kindly offering to give away an iPhone 4S and a $200 American Express Gift Card to our readers! We think you’ll be just as excited about this fabulous giveaway as we are!

In order to participate in the giveaway, tell us which outfit, particular item of clothing or accessory makes you feel extra confident during a job interview. Enter the giveaway by filling out the entry form below with your answer.

There will be two lucky winners! First prize is one iPhone 4S, in the colour of the winner’s choice. Second prize is a $200 American Express Gift Card that you can spend in all stores where American Express is accepted. Both prizes will be drawn using a random number generator.

The giveaway will close 5 minutes before midnight (Pacific Standard Time) on Wednesday 14 December. It is open to all entrants living in the United States.
