How to Dress for an Interview

The dress code in most organizations is as distinct as the organization itself, therefore it is impossible to choose an outfit that would work well in all interviews. What should you do? Do some investigating and find out how the employees dress and follow their lead but dress just little better.

Wear business-like apparel, avoiding loud colours, bold designs, logos and keep jewelry to a minimal. Wear clothes in which you feel comfortable and don't wear skirts that will ride up when you sit. Carry a good attaché case or folder to store your resume and examples of your work.

Before you leave home inspect yourself in a full length mirror and have one last look for rips, runs in stockings (carry an additional pair just in case you have a run along the journey) and buttons that are about to fall off. A few extra points:

1. Wear a trendy suit or dressy tailored separates. Make sure they fit nicely and don't remove the jacket during the interview (don't laugh, I witnessed this happen).

2. Prepare your attire for the interview the night before and try it on. Don't leave anything to chance.

3. If you are not wearing a jacket but choose to wear something more casual long sleeves are a necessary. Sleeveless clothes should not be worn in a professional place and particularly not during an interview.

4. Never go without hosiery and don't wear sandals.

5. It has been said that you can glance at a person's shoes and identify how wealthy they are - it seems shoes are the last investment. For an interview or business, wear shoes with a closed toe and closed heel and maintain them shined without nicked heels or scruffy toes.

6. Pay attention to your hair. A fashionable haircut is vital to a professional impression.

7. Carry yourself with confidence; stand tall with your shoulders back. Portray a successful image by paying attention to details - tastefully done makeup, the best outfits you can afford and being prepared for the interview.

When you are prepared for the interview, which entails knowing the job you have applied for, knowing your resume and how you fit that role, your self-confidence will become apparent. Taking care of how you look will give you one less thing to worry about so you can concentrate on selling your skills.

Don't forget to smile!!
