Different industries have different dress codes. However, it is always better to be overdressed than underdressed.
First Impressions:Dress for success.
Do not give the interviewer a chance to rule you out because you did not feel like ironing your shirt or polishing your shoes. Here are some suggestions for selecting your interviewing wardrobe:,
- Suit - try to stick with traditionally conservative colors like, black, grey or navy blue
- Oxford shirt or Blouse - make sure the shirt is ironed
- Tie - should be medium width and tied to hang at the tip of your belt buckle.
- Shoes - make sure they are polished and free of any scuff marks, high heels should be between 1-2 inches, your socks should match your shoes, hosiery is appropriate with heels and should be solid, dark colored (bring an extra set just in case)
In most situations, you will be appropriately dressed if you wear a suit. Limit your jewelry and avoid cologne. You should pay attention to details like polished shoes, straight ties, and stockings without runs. Make sure you are well groomed for the interview (clean fingernails, fresh hair cut, etc.). If you have visible piercings or tattoos, conceal them if possible.
