What To Wear To A Job Interview

You know what they say, the first impression you make is a very important one.

And your job interview is one important event where you would want to make the best impression. It only takes a few seconds for job interviewers to make their first impression of you. Investing a few more minutes in how you put yourself together could be the difference in landing a job sooner rather than later.

Here are a few tips on what to wear to a job interview to help you create a good first impression.

Ladies, wear modest and conservative casual business attire. Long skirts or long-sleeves will do nicely. Flashy jewelry, cosmetics or clothes that are too revealing is a no-no.

  • Color-coordinated blouse (modest neckline)
  • Closed toed shoes or pumps (no extreme heels)
  • Limited jewelry
  • Neat, professional hairstyle
  • Light make-up
  • Neatly trimmed and manicured nails

Gentlemen, dress smart with your best business casual attire, nothing too flashy or trendy. Long sleeved shirts or polo shirts with black or khaki slacks are recommended.

  • Solid color polo / long-sleeved shirts
  • Necktie (optional)
  • Socks
  • Clean shoes
  • Neat hairstyle
  • Neatly trimmed nails

Remember it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed. And don’t forget to flash a happy smile every now and then during your interview.

Now you are all set for your interview. Good luck!
