How to dress for an interview | Advice for HIM
As we mentioned in the article How to dress for an interview | Advice for HER , a job interview is your opportunity to impress the potential employer, and to impress him, you have to make a good first impression.
And for making a good first impression, you need to dress properly. Dress to impress!
So let’s get started!
– A suit
A suit is the most important thing a man should take in consideration when going to a job interview. A proper suit can be the key of your success. Invest more money in a good suit, and you’ll feel like a lawyer from the TV show ‘Suits’. It’s recommendable that the costume should be or navy, or dark gray. Avoid the double-breasted suits. A 2-button style is more classic. And make sure your suit is neat before you leave the house.
– Long sleeve shirt
White is always a good choice. For you first interview, it’s better if you would wear a white shirt. Again, make sure the shirt is neat. And no blends.
– A tie
Neat pattern, with a small dot or classic stripes, the tie is very important. Avoid the ties that are overly bright. I hope you figured out that a bow tie is out of the quoestion. You’re not going to a weeding.
A black pair of shoes is what you need to complete your professional look. And wear ONLY black socks. How funny do you think you’ll be if you wear a presentable suit, and your Naruto socks are are in sight?
– Professional hairstyle
Don’t wear a hairstyle that’s more like the ones of Taft Schwarzkopf commercials.You’ re not going to a parade. And you’d better not use a lot of hairgel. Aslo, if you’re a beard lover, you may have to give up on that for a while. A hairstyle like the one Brad Pitt has will do the trick.
Better no accessories than cheap accessories. So, if you really want to wear one, make sure you invest money in something with hight quality. Still, don’t forget you’re in a suit, so a sport watch will do you no good. Go more for the classic style.
Just spray a little on the wrists.
This is the second best thing a man can wear, after a suit. Be confident! Your potential employer will notice that!
