How to Dress For a Job Interview
Once upon a time, almost everyone wore their finest during interviews, ladies wore their dresses and the men wore their suits. The demand for such strict dress code is fading but that does not reduce the importance of the right clothing.
Today, it is still important to think thoroughly what to wear in job interviews. How you dress is the first thing the interviewer will notice and is a vital part of your first impression.
It may not sound very fair, but as an interviewee and job seeker, you are evaluated within a matter of seconds from entering an interview. If you manage to impress the interviewer, you are already setting the tone for a positive outcome.
The meaning of appropriate dress obviously varies. Depending on the type of job you’re interviewing for, dressing up to the company's expectations will show that you understand what the company stands for and that you are a good fit there. It also shows that you took the initiative to do some background research on the company before showing up for the interview.
