Women in Business Tip: Is Your Cell Phone Hurting Your Image?

Who cares what mobile phone you use? The truth is, even if no one ever says anything to your face, it’s likely someone is noticing your phone and making a judgment—especially other women. In a recent uSell.com survey, 60 percent of females (compared to 50 percent of males) said they judge a person during a business meeting based on their phone model and condition. And it doesn’t end there: 55 percent of respondents say that if a business meeting participant pulls out a damaged or outdated cell phone, this negatively affects their impression of him or her. More than 80 percent of people say they judge a person to be “frugal,” “not tech savvy” or “old” if they carry an older model cell phone­­.
