Does what you wear to an interview really make a difference in the hiring process? The answer is yes – the way you dress always matters
Don’t allow your appearance to damage your chances of being hired for a job. As the old phrase goes, “dress for success!” When you walk into an interview room the very first thing an interviewer does is look at you. No matter how many skills you have and how relevant your experience is, do not allow this first impression to ruin your chances.
Make no mistake – dressing properly will not guarantee you the job, but dressing inappropriately can definitely lose you the job.
Gaining employment is subject to numerous variables beyond your control and factors significantly unknown to you. You have no control over employer perceptions, personal preferences or the competitors for the job. You do, however, have control of your image and how you present yourself. How you look can send a powerful message to the interviewer and can portray a signal that you are a winner or a loser.
You have made it this far in the interview process – don’t let your appearance sabotage your opportunity to get the job.
So make sure you exude confidence and look successful.
