Work accessories: How to look professional

I have talked before about How to choose the perfect work bag here and here, and also about How to choose a laptop bag here. I want to focus now on other work accessories, those that also help you maintain a professional image.

Old fashioned and high-tech work accessories

How to choose your work accessories

Something for everybody
The old-fashioned ones, for those of us who still rely mostly on paper:
  • A personal organizer or planner...
  • A jotter or memo pad.
  • A pencil case.
  • A professional-looking writing pen, not to be sneered at: make a small investment in a pen with some personality to sign documents. You won't be asking to borrow one or searching for a generic ones that happens to be lying around.
  • A portfolio to carry to meetings. 
  • An attaché or briefcase.
  • A card case for your business cards.
The high-tech ones:
  • A sleeve for your mobile/smartphone BlackBerry, iPhone and such.
  • A laptop sleeve, if you are going to move around with it out of its bag.
