Downton Abbey Wears Cufflinks

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

 

In season one of the underground hit show, Downton Abbey, you may have come across the acute obsession to detail in clothing and appearance. To our delight, cufflinks played a large part in this Victorian obsession. When Matthew Crawley comes to Downton, he finds himself put-off by the amount of attention he receives from the household servants. He can’t fathom the need for a footman, someone to dress him “like a dog” everyday, and innocently appeals to dismiss their superfluous services.

But after a seemingly cordial run-in with the head of the household, he grows to understand that everyone “needs to play his or her part” and it’s quite wrong to dismiss servants when they want to do their job. He questions Crawley, asking if when he takes over the Downton domain, will he dismiss the numerous staff members simply because of Crawley’s taste, or will he realize that they’re place in at Downton, they are an integral part of the household, and their living must not be taken lightly.

It’s then, and only then, does Crawley open up to the idea of being waited on by servants. One of these tasks include PICKING OUT CUFFLINKS and PUTTING THEM ON. “I think these are too formal for the occasion. Can you pick another pair?” “Would you like the crescent ones, sir? I think they are much more suitable.” Such a wonderful moment captured in film…

“The Downton Abbey estate stands a splendid example of confidence and mettle, its family enduring for generations and its staff a well-oiled machine of propriety. But change is afoot at Downton — change far surpassing the new electric lights and telephone. A crisis of inheritance threatens to displace the resident Crawley family, in spite of the best efforts of the noble and compassionate Earl, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville, Miss Austen Regrets); his American heiress wife, Cora (Elizabeth McGovern); his comically implacable, opinionated mother, Violet (Maggie Smith, David Copperfield); and his beautiful, eldest daughter, Mary, intent on charting her own course. Reluctantly, the family is forced to welcome its heir apparent, the self-made and proudly modern Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), himself none too happy about the new arrangements. As Matthew’s bristly relationship with Mary begins to crackle with electricity, hope for the future of Downton’s dynasty takes shape. But when petty jealousies and ambitions grow among the family and the staff, scheming and secrets — both delicious and dangerous — threaten to derail the scramble to preserve Downton Abbey. Created and written by Oscar-winner Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park), Downton Abbey offers a spot-on portrait of a vanishing way of life.”

Ways to Ace an Interview and How to Prepare

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Get to Know the People in the Company. Know their names, occupations, and contributions to the company. Is the CEO from Montreal? Did your prospective superviser go to Stanford? Did he/she raise the company profit over a period of time or introduce a new company standard? The point is to make it seem like you’ve done your homework on the individuals who have contributed to the company. It will give you a one up over the rest if you know that the woman who is interviewing you likes to go water skiing every summer and secretly enjoys a particular author. Don’t stalk the people, just do some quick online research to see what their backgrounds are like. This will also help you prepare for the interview by getting yourself familiar with the personalities of the company.

Be selective about what you wear. I know, you’ve heard this a million times, but think about the company itself—is it more laid back than formal? Is it high-end or trendy? Does it have to do with fashion or finance? Little touches on your ensemble can make a big difference, be it financial cufflinks or an Oil Derrick Cufflink set. If the company is relaxed and fashion forward make sure you don’t come in wearing a sodden boring brown suit.

Add some flair, a pop of color like a neck tie or this Daniel Dolce Dark Navy Blue handkerchief. If the company is more formal and traditional, go for a traditional Blue Enamel Knot Cufflinks set.

Be assertive, friendly, and smile, but not too much. Don’t seem too eager but have ready responses for why you really do want this particular position. Draw on life experiences: if it’s a sales job what’s the highest record you’ve set? Highest profit margin? Why do you like working with the public? Why do you like desk work? Do you have a high concentration level and are detail oriented? Give examples as to how you are this way i.e. SPECIFICS. “I know this may sound off, but I really enjoy crunching numbers and working with figures.” “I can’t seem myself working outside a group setting. My strategy is to use each individual team members’ strength to the projective advantage, thereby increasing the productivity.”

Work on your nerves, don’t drink to much coffee beforehand. Don’t spray too much cologne or perfume. Have your resume on hand. And another resume on hand, just in case. Memorize your resume. You don’t want to be confused if your prospective employer asks you about something on it that you looked or seem surprised about.

Have at least one “bad” quality about yourself, but don’t make it too bad. For instance, when/if you’re asked if you have any flaws, answer honestly, but not too honestly. Turn it into a positive. “Because I’m so detailed oriented, I can get particular about certain things, like when lines aren’t straight on documents or when words are misspelled.” “I have a problem when people are disrespectful or uncouth. There’s no reason to be rude, ever.” “I tend to stick up for the underdog.” Or jokingly recite some flaws: “I tend to spend too much on Starbucks coffee.” “My wife says I lack certain table manners, but I think I’m just fine.” Or “I never use my signal when turning. And rarely change my windsheild wipers.” These take the pressure off the interview and bring out your human qualities, which are just as important as your work capacity.
