How to Dress for a Job Interview

Walking into a job interview wearing the wrong attire is like showing up at a black-tie event dressed for a costume party. A bad move you'll instantly regret.

Step 1: Find out dress code
Before the big event, find out how the employees dress where you'll be interviewing. Ask whoever's arranging the interview for you what the dress code is, and if they have any pointers on what to wear.

Step 2: Choose clothes
Find something in your wardrobe that's in line with what other employees wear, but kick it up a notch—a sharp tie, a colorful scarf or pocket square. Something to separate you from the pack.

Step 3: Don't go overboard
But don't go overboard. You want to make a good impression, not a fashion statement.

Step 4: Keep it tasteful
Go easy on the aftershave or perfume too, or the makeup and jewelry—keep things tasteful.

Step 5: Be neat
Be neat. Make sure your clothes are clean and pressed, your nails are trimmed, and your hair and teeth are brushed.

Step 6: Dress comfortably
Make sure you'll be comfortable sitting, standing, and walking. Now is not the time to break in a new pair of shoes.

Step 7: Give yourself time
Get prepared early, show up on time and, most importantly, make sure you end up in the right place.

Did You Know?
Research shows that 55% of a person's overall impression of you is based on how you look.

    The video was informative and the comedy was used tastefully to drive the
    point home. Very well done.

    55% was probably a number they pulled out of their ass, but it’s probably
    somewhere there….

    @richrainbow 100% of all statistics that claim that a certain percent of
    statistics are made up on the spot are made up on the spot.
