Dressing for a job interview is much
easier if you are a man. However, this does not mean you should
not care at all what you look like. It is still important and
will indicate to the interviewer how much you want the job and
whether you are going to be presentable to clients. Remember first
Here are a few tips for what to wear at a job interview:
1. A sober coloured suit is a priority. Try and go for dark,
neutral colours such as black, charcoal, grey or a dark blue.
A basic pinstripe is also fine. However even if louder colours
or patterns are currently in fashion it is better to avoid anything
that will distract the interviewers attention. Stay conservative.
2. Remember that this is not a fashion parade. The interviewer
will not be judging whether you are fashionable. The important
point is to avoid distracting the interviewer from understanding
how suitable you are for the job. Sober colours and a neat appearance
are far more preferable than trying to convince the interviewer
that you are "cool".
3. Your tie is somewhere you can add colour to your outfit. Try
and wear a tie that suits your shirt and suit. Try to avoid too
many colours, but you may wish to wear a bold and vivid colour
like red that can project a air of confidence without being overstated.
