Relevance of the Miss Hercules Beauty Pageant

Reality TV and the media have sometimes given pageants a bad reputation. We all find ourselves thinking about how elegant pageants still are today's woman. Think pageants are only about strutting your stuff on stage in front of the judges? Think again! The techniques women learn to compete in pageants are the same ones they can use to climb the proverbial career ladder. Check out these five pageant tips that can be directly applied to excel in the workplace.
Be extremely knowledgeable.

Pageant queens don't ace the interview competition just because of their looks; they do well being interviewed because of their brains and personality. "When you compete in a pageant, from local to international levels, you quickly realize that answering a variety of questions flawlessly is a huge element in the competition. You never know what questions you'll be asked so you have to prepare for anything. Essentially, your answer news to be as beautiful as you are on stage", commented Christina Clarke, Miss Washington USA 2012. "And while beauty might be noticed, it''s brains that are the most important aspect when it comes to competing in a pageant as well as competing for a job in a business".

Your goal… lean everything you can about the company, industry, key competitors, and needs of the customer. Then put your knowledge tot work during interviews for you dream job by dazzling them with your wisdom and ideas.
Stand tall and show your confidence.

Do you wonder why pageant contestants look so confident? Because they practice exuding confidence even when they maybe quaking nerves on the inside.

States Libby Crawford, "Miss Oregon America 2012, "Pageants are mental game and it can be nerve wracking to go onstage in front of judges and a large television audience. So, I remind myself that I am not competing against anyone else but me and I picture myself the winner. This turns my mindset from nerves into confidence. I've found if you can act confidently you'll become a confident person on stage or in the workplace." Well said. Confidence is key for women job seekers and obtaining promotions; just remember to exude confidence, not arrogance.
Know your strengths and play with them.

Pageant contestants often spend years honing their talent, just like women in the workplace spend years gaining job skills and experience. The key is to be able to share your talents with others. Fearlessly, contestants share their talents with an audience to bring to light other facets of their personality, and ultimately, in their ability to be a well rounded titleholder. To excel in your career, women must be confident enough to display their unique talents and strengths. When you do what you do best, your productivity increases.
Dress for the job you desire.

Ever watch the national pageants on television and the oohs and aahhs over the magnificent evening gowns? Contestants choose their gown carefully because they believe that it is the best one to reflect who they are and the position they are competing (because winning a pageant is a one year job).
Positivity is an incredible powerful tool.

Pageant contestants don't have dazzling smiles for no reason; they know the secret is that an authentic smile not only wins over others, it also makes you fell great inside. "Putting a smile on your face even you're tired and things aren't going well was one of the biggest lessons I learned from competing in pageant" commented Debra Gilmour, former Beauties of America in the 50's. "I don't know why but smiling makes me feel better and positively affects the mood around me." What's the old saying about smile and the whole world smiles with you? Try it and see.
