How to Dress for an Interview [infographic]

March 28, 2013 |  by  |  Business

You have spent an absurd amount of time preparing for that big interview, and you finally landed it! Now the next big thing to worry about is what to wear. First impressions have lasting effect on employers, therefore, you don’t want to go looking like a dirty hobo or a fashionista. Every tiny detail of your wardrobe that day can determine the impression you leave on an employer. I can recall an interview I had not too long ago: the girl next to me looked put together for the most part, but her chipped neon green nail polish had me cringing each time she moved her hands. If I noticed, I’m sure the employer noticed. Thankfully, today’s infographic on what to wear to a job interview will keep you from making any wardrobe mistakes. So don’t put any more stress on yourself, consult this infographic and I’m sure you’ll nail your interview and snag your dream job! [via]

    It might be a good idea to expand past your standard drab corporate cubicle job. There’s more to dressing well than becoming just another carbon copy.

    I’ve been in high tech for over 20 years. ALOT has changed since then…for instance, most high tech companies have a casual dress code (granted, no short shorts, low cut blouses, etc.) but nice dressy jeans, boots, or high heels with a nice top and/or jacket. I’ve seen even the most polished companies and their executives dress casual every day and into meetings. Now in the Finance industry, it’s a different story – men wear slacks, a collared shirt and in meetings, they wear suits; women are suited up too and the culture in finance, insurance, health care are conservative.
    I think it’s important to dress up for interviews and the first month in a new job situation. Observe your surroundings, notice how the men and women dress and then slowly adapt to the company’s culture.

    This is absurd. As long as you are wearing proper attire and nothing that is too bold or revealing, you give a good impression. No one is trying to make fashion statement here. Just look appropriate and you will be good. Don’t have to follow any specific format.

    To the negative responders, there are no hard and fast rules and we all have different opinions. So relax a little bit and try not to be so judgmental.

    The point of the infographic is this: You want the people who interview you to remember you because of what you say, not what your clothing looked like. Interviews are your chance for a first (and in many cases, last) impression.

    If you don’t care about that, then go right ahead and “be yourself”, dress inappropriately and forego those opportunities that may have arisen had you put a little more thought into your wardrobe.

    Good luck to all of you!
