DRESSING TO FIT THE JOB IN AN INTERVIEW Learn quick tips on mastering the art of dressing well for an interview

  • By dressing appropriately to fit the job in your interview, you signal potential employers that you respect their company’s culture. Your interview clothes should demonstrate that you care enough to expend the effort to make the right impression.
  • Visual appearance is the first impression you make
  • When people notice and feel connected to the way you dress they will feel you are a good fit to who they are.
  • Social DNA draws people to others who are like them.

Lets look at the attire that you would need to make the best first impression.

A few important things to consider are the colours you pick and the fit you wear, ensure the colour suits your personality. Picking a colour that is neutral could appeal to a larger group of people. Wear clothes that fit you comfortably and make sure they are not too loose or too tight.

Grooming Essentials - Here are a few tips that you should consider

Hair, Nails and the Rest

Clean and trim your fingernails. One of the first things you’ll do is shake hands. You want to be sure your hands are presentable

See that hair is neat — combed, brushed, and away from your face. For men, a quick visit to a barber or hair salon to clean up areas like the back of the neck or the ears will improve your appearance and keep the focus on what you have to say, not how you look.

Fresh, Clean and Pressed

Check that clothes are neat and clean. That means they are stain-free, odor-free, and wrinkle-free. It’s not a bad idea to invest in an iron: Pressed impresses

Leave extra jewellery at home. Keep it to a minimum — nothing flashy or jangly —so it doesn’t distract the interviewer.

Pleasant, Memorable and Confident

An interview isn't a place to experiment with the latest trends, focus on making yourself feel more confident with your makeup. You want people to remember you, not the crazy blue eyeliner you wore, as you thought this would separate you from the competition.

Fresh, clean and shining

Make sure your footwear is cleaned and shined. People, including interviewers, notice your footwear. If it’s messy or dirty or unkempt and flashy, is that how you’ll be in your job as well?
