Think a solid resume and a firm handshake are all it takes to land that dream job and start crushing people on your climb up the corporate ladder?
Here’s some sobering news for you job seekers out there: Gillette recently surveyed 500 HR professionals and found that when it comes to first impressions, 99% of them place more importance on being well-groomed than having a firm handshake. And 84% agreed that well-groomed employees climb the corporate ladder faster than those who are not well-groomed.
So you know that edgy, freeform beard-like thing you’ve got growing on your mug? Lose it. Yeah, I know it helped Justin Timberlake nail Cameron Diaz, Jessica Beil and Rhianna, but he’s not trying to make VP of Operations.
To help you get the look that’ll help get you that corner office… with the type of assistant Letterman likes… Gillette and I are giving you a shot at winning their Career Advantage prize pack.
It’s got what you need to get that look of yours in boardroom shape:
A Gillette Fusion Power Gamer razor
Two blade refill packs
Gillette Series Shave Gel
Gillette Clear Shield Deodorant
Gillette Hydrating Body Wash
If you haven’t given the Fusion Power razor a shot, you’re missing out. Five blades, a trimmer blade on the back, and a vibrating handle that can power through the roughest whiskers. Nothing gives you a closer shave.
I gave my dad one to test drive… a guy who has used triple blade plastic disposables for decades “because they work just fine and they’re cheap.” A guy who hates change. And loves being skeptical: “The handle vibrates? Who needs that shit?” A week in, he’s calling with daily shave updates: “I’m so smooth, I only have to shave every other day now!”… “The guy who thought up that blade on the back for trimming sideburns? A fucking genius!” Seriously.
All you need to do for a shot at winning the pack of Gillette grooming goods is enter your email addy here. And on Friday, Oct 9 I’ll pick two of you to experience what that vibrating handle shit is for.
