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.
