Look your Best in your Next Interview!

You always hear that for an interview, you should dress for success--but what does that really mean? Here are some tid-bits about personal grooming to keep in mind as you prepare for your next mock or real interview:

  1. Do not wear too much fragrance. If you have been told in the past, "I smell you when you leave the room," YES that is too much.
  2. Brush your teeth (and make sure you check for bagel seeds in-between!) 
  3. Wear clothes that fit. If they are too tight, you will look uncomfortable and feel uncomfortable as well.
  4. Wear comfortable shoes; for ladies, make sure your heel height is appropriate.
  5. Ladies, keep a shorter nail length and wear neutral nail polish.
  6. Minimal jewelry overall; for the men, NO earrings.
  7. Hair should be neat and clean (keep in mind, there are MANY old school interviewers, know the work culture of the company!)
  8. Makeup – less is best!
  9. For clothing, men should wear a dark suit and ladies may want to consider wearing stockings with your skirt suit (better to safe than sorry!)
  10. No matter your look, bring your BEST you.
