What To Wear At The Job Interview

Jun 19, 2008
To dress correctly is very important when going to a job interview. Chances are that the employer, who is interviewing you, does not see the qualification you have, because of the outfit you are wearing. It can be everything as a bad bar of shoes or just cloth that is dirty. Generally speaking, please choose a simple but formal attire and make sure that the outfit you are wearing is clean and you shoes are polish.

A few words about Hygiene:
To look clean and fresh is also very important! However, do not put on too much make-up or perfume before going to the interview. Use this kind of products lightly. It is mush safer that way, because if you have put on allot of perfume on yourself, and the interviewer has asthma or are allergic to perfume, you will have some serious trouble of getting the job. So, please avoid it.
Another thing to consider is your hare. You should fix your hair so that you will look professional. For woman, it is best if the hair is properly comb

So what should you wear if you are women?
To be more specific, you should follow this advice:

1. Skirted suits. A two piece matched light colour suit is the safest choice for women
2. Limited jewellery such as one wedding ring
3. Briefcase
4. Ideal footwear to wear is the shoes
5. Conservative watch

Things you should not ware as a woman:

1. Gaudy jewellery
2. Tongue or nose jewellery
3. Pantsuits (considered being unprofessional and outdated)

Now, let talk about what men should wear:

1. Decent suit
2. Tie and a long sleeve shirt
3. Dark shoes which you have polished
4. A pair of matching socks.

Things you should avoid to wear as a man:

1. Bow ties
2. Earrings or tongue/nose jewellery.

Most of this thing is quite obviously for most of us and If you follow this advice, your chance of getting the job will increase. However, there are a couple of things that I have not mentioned yet. That is that you should check the dress code of the company that you are going to have an interview with, before actually going to the interview.
Let us say your are having an interview. The job is about being a carpenter. Then, wearing a black Armani suit, want do you any favour. To avoid this kind of mistake, it is much easier to call the company and ask them about the dress code.
Still, the hygiene is important, no matter what kind of job you are searching for.
I hope this article will help you on the way for a successfully job interview.
