Image plays a tremendous role at work - anywhere, really - and when you don't "look the part" people notice. You don't...
Agree with Hersaugeber. Btw, 90% of our work comes from referals and most of those come from former coworkers. People move on and do interesting things and need help and YOU are a known quantity.
