In yesterday’s post about the new Allen gearless ratchet, I repeated their description about how the full polish finish was for professional appearance. That’s not why most people buy polished tools, but it got me thinking about professional appearance in a broader sense.
Are there any tools or particular brands of tools that you buy and use with professional appearance in mind? What about your work wear and tool boxes? The truck that you drive?
There are industries where professional appearance has a say in the equipment that is used.
Who do you think stands a better chance at being hired for a wedding or school photos, a photographer with a low-end dSLR camera with kit lens, or one with a higher-end dSLR camera and professional lenses?
Would you hire the videographer with a consumer camcorder to work on your commercial, or the one with a professional video camera?
Would you hire the accountant, lawyer, financial adviser who greets you while wearing sneakers, jeans, and a stained short sleeve button down shirt, or the one that is fully dressed in business attire?
What do you do to improve or promote your professional experience?
If you clicked into the post from the home page, and saw the Dewalt 20V Max impact wrench, here’s the new Dewalt cordless power tools sneak peek post that it came from.
