Our Top 10 Most Read Articles Of 2015
It’s almost the end of the year and it’s time to announce our most read articles of 2015 at CCG. This year has been whirlwind and a pivotal one for Team CCG. It’s hard to image a year filled with more change and activity than this last year.
One thing we see time and time again are the hot topics that you love reading about are money and reading. That’s good because we love writing about those topics too.  And of course, the job search, fashion and hair topics always come in very closely behind.
This year, an old post about standing up for yourself made the list which we were excited to see. It really is your time to get what you deserve and share with the world your thoughts and views. That truly is how you will make your dreams happen.
As we enter into a new year with thousands more new articles, we hope you enjoy a review of some of the most read articles over the last year.  And hopefully, the summer workwear one will help you keep those winter blues away as well.

Here are the top ten most read articles of 2015 on Classy Career Girl:

How-To-Stand-Up-For-Yourself-At-Work-Today

Do you ever feel like you are being taken advantage of at work?  Do you ever feel like you can’t stand up for what you think or believe at work?
One thing that I have learned in my job is that you have to speak up for what you think because if you don’t, it usually means more time and work.  Even if no one listens to what I have to say, at least I have said what I think and believe.  I remember how hard it was to stand up for myself when I first started my job.  It was terribly difficult.

6. What Should I Wear To an Interview – Skirt Suit or Pant Suit?

what to wear to an interview

Dear Classy Career Girl, I have a big interview next week.  I feel a suit with a skirt as opposed to pants is more appropriate based on the level on the position I’m interviewing for.  My legs are not to the point I would want to go bare legged as I’m Irish and it is winter – need I say more! Should I forgo the skirt and wear a professional pant suit?  Or should I wear a skirted suit with pantyhose.  I am going to pick a cream color, tan or light gray suit as I think light colors look better on me. Thanks for any advice you can give! -Pantyhoser

Some hiring managersonly look at a cover letter because it should give them everything they really want to know about you.  Some hiring managers find resumes boring and they only want to see the good stuff where you really brag about yourself and tell them exactly why they should hire you.  That is why an AWESOME cover letter truly is important!
