High Level Education is Like Gold to Potential Employers: Show if Off! Entry Level Job Seekers: Where Should Education be Placed on the Resume
May 04

Dressing appropriately for a job interview is critical, because as the saying goes, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression.” Because employers are prohibited by law from asking personal questions in a job interview, they will use your appearance to judge whether you would make a good fit in their particular work environment.

The general rule is to dress for the job you are seeking. For a management position, definitely wear a suit. Tailored separates are fine for a clerical role, but make sure your clothes are neat, clean and coordinated. Dress conservatively for a conservative environment, like a bank, but feel free to show your individual style in a more creative work setting, as long as your clothes are appropriate.

If you are female, make sure your skirts aren’t too short, and your heels aren’t too high. Don’t dress for attention – dress for success. If you are male, always wear a tie, even for an interview in a casual work environment. Just wear it with a shirt and casual slacks rather than with a suit.

The bottom line is that you should make sure that your clothes help you sell yourself as the perfect candidate for the job. If you are dressed appropriately, employers are more likely to feel that you will fit right in.
