When you have secured a job interview, you must keep in mind that no matter what type of impression you gave with your resume, how you look and present yourself in the first minute of your interview will weigh heaviest on the actual first impression. Therefore it is critical that you dress to impress and make a great impression on those interviewing you.
With that in mind, here is a list of what not to wear to a job interview.
- Outfits that show your underwear, including shirts that are too low cut or see through and pants that hang too low.
- Piercing jewelry, except earrings in ears for women.
- Makeup for men.
- Anything provocative, too revealing or too sexy
- Tank tops
- Skull caps
- Printed T-shirts
- Exercise clothes
- Clothing appropriate for nightlife
A job interview is an opportunity that you have to get a job that you have applied on and therefore must be interested in somewhat at least. Don’t let a bad clothing choice ruin your chances. Dress like a professional and you’ll be treated like one. The right outfit can easily get you one step closer to your dream job, while the wrong outfit can knock out your chances in an instant.
