How to Dress for an Interview

In today’s society, candidates wear denim, sweat suits, stilettos and sneakers. Other applicants show pierced body parts and spiked hair. Still others chew gum or show up in rumpled clothes or with their pants falling down.

The outlandish attire can cost these candidates the job.

The first impression you make on a potential employer is the most important one. The first judgment an interviewer makes is based on how you look and what you are wearing. That’s why it’s always important to dress professionally for a job interview, even if the work environment is casual.

What’s the appropriate dress code for an interview? You’ll want your first impression to a great one. The candidate dressed in a suit and tie is going to make a much better impression than the candidate dressed in jeans and a t-shirt.

Consider these key aspects when dressing for a job interview:

  • Tasteful style
  • Appropriate colors
  • Fit

Dressing for a job interview is key to your success. Your interview clothes send a powerful message to the interviewer about your professionalism and competence.
