Dress for Success

Interviewing for a job is stressful enough without having to worry about your clothing and appearance. A clean and neat professional appearance is an important step in making a good first impression. Dress as you want to be seen: professional, successful, and the kind of person the company wants to represent it.

While there are no absolute rules, in any job interview, you need to make sure that your clothes fit well and are clean, not wrinkled or stained. Clean, appropriate shoes are also important.

Below are clothing items that are not acceptable for interviews:

  • Denim and shorts
  • Tank tops or crop tops
  • Flip flops, sandals, or tennis/running shoes
  • Trendy or loud clothing
  • Very short, tight, or low-cut clothing

Not all workplaces require employees to wear business suits. Those industries could include factory assembly work, fast food restaurants, building maintenance, and many retail positions. Some positions may also require you wear a uniform. In both cases, wear a "business casual" outfit to the job interview, but don't go too casual.

Remember to have one good outfit ready to wear. That way you won't have to scramble when you get a last-minute interview.

Having trouble finding an outfit? We can help!  Read below about getting an interview outfit from Clyde’s Closet.
