Dress to impress

Whether it's your first time, or years as a veteran in the workforce, job interviews are a nerve-wracking experience. While we can't help you with what to say, what we can say is that an interview is the one place where first impressions REALLY matter. If you look drab, grab the door handle as you won't be there long. Remember to do your homework when choosing your outfits. Here are some tips to make sure you look as good as your resume.

If the company is a business professional one, choose a neutral colour suit, shirt and tie. Avoid anything too glamorous or outrageous. For women, a blouse and dress pants, or a simple sari can do the trick.

If the company is business casual instead, avoid anything formal and go with chinos, or dark jeans, neutral shirts or polos instead. Women can opt for a simple dress, or a blouse-pant combo or shalwar kameez. Remember the rule of avoiding outrageous colours.

Don't think you can relax if your company has a casual approach as its still important to look presentable and polished. Khaki pants, polos, dress shirts rounded up with nice loafers or sneakers are all good options. Women can opt for a casual blouse, t-shirts or shirt with pants or skirt.

Remember to try on your outfits the day before the interview so you are able to fix any problems if there is. Also, try not to bathe in cologne, and pay attention to yourself such as getting a haircut or shave, and that should be it. Good luck!
