You’ve done it! You’ve landed an interview with a company that will help you advance in your current career, or one that is open to giving you a chance to start a new one. The next step is deciding what to wear to help win over your interviewer. Follow these four tips to interview success when selecting your attire.
Research The Company Culture
When looking for this job, odds are you visited the company’s website. Did you notice the people in the images? What were the employees wearing? The images a company uses to portray its employees should tell you everything you need to know about what to wear. If you’re unsure, enlist the help of a career coach to prepare you. At C.RiceGlobal, we prepare our job-seekers thoroughly to glide through the interview process, from what to say to what to wear.
Looking Confident Means Feeling Confident
No matter if you’re wearing a suit or a dress shirt, if you’re proud of your neat and tidy appearance, that confidence can help reduce the nerves that are a natural part of the interview process. Also, a smile is one of the most important things you can wear to an interview!
Check The Mirror
Before the day of your interview, put on the outfit you plan to wear and stand in front of a full-body mirror. Make sure it fits properly and doesn’t shift too much when you sit down. Make sure your shoes are clean and professional. Avoid flip flops and tennis shoes! For more tips and ideas, visit our Pinterest page that displays many examples of professional business attire.
It’s More Than The Clothes
While the clothes are important, the most important factor when dressing is your attitude! A firm professional handshake, eye contact, and a smile are incredibly powerful. Good posture also goes a long way and shows that you are interested in the opportunity. Once you’re dressed for your interview and have remembered one of the most important steps, it’s time to go in there and make a great impression!
