Your interview is the most important part of your job search, so you want to make sure you’re looking and feeling your best. Here are some tips to help you be prepared for an interview:
Make sure you’re out of your work clothes
- Make sure you’re out of your work clothes. You may be comfortable in them, but they won’t make a good first impression.
- Iron and wash your dress for an interview. If possible, wear something new; fresh clothes are always more flattering than the ones you’ve been wearing for days in the office or at home.
- Avoid wearing too much jewelry, it’s likely that most of it will be covered up by your clothing anyway, so leave some room for accessories on top of that! It also looks best when there’s some contrast between what’s underneath and what’s visible on top (such as a nice blouse worn with jeans). If in doubt about whether or not an item belongs in this category, err on the side of caution and leave it behind if possible, you can always change into something else later if needed!
Make sure you’re in your interview clothes
- Make sure you’re in your interview clothes. This one seems like a no-brainer, but it’s important to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible when interviewing. If your outfit is too tight or scratchy, you may end up fidgeting throughout the interview or even worse sitting there with sweat stains under your arms.
- Dress for the job you want, not the one you have. You’ll feel better if your appearance reflects what kind of position you want to be in rather than dressing as if all that matters is getting hired by this company right away and being miserable once they get done grooming their perfect worker bee (which will probably be within six months).
- Be mindful of the company’s dress code. If there isn’t any official dress code posted online and/or on their website, ask about it when making an appointment for an interview so that nothing surprises either party on day one! It never hurts to overdo it because if anything looks too casual or too formal then there’s still room for improvement later down road.”
Brush your teeth
It’s a good idea to brush your teeth before an interview, especially if you’ll be drinking coffee or water during the interview. If they offer snacks, make sure they’re not sugary nothing that will cause plaque and lead to bad breath. Avoid chewing gum as well because it can get stuck in your teeth or fall out of your mouth at exactly the wrong moment (and who wants to explain why they’re chewing on a piece of gum?).
You’ve heard us say it before, don’t smoke! If you do smoke cigarettes, try quitting for at least two weeks before the interview so that tobacco isn’t on your breath when you walk into the building.
Do a breath check
Before you head out the door, check your breath. Nothing is more embarrassing than a bad smell. You may need to apply some breath mints or mouthwash. If you are worried about morning breath, brush your teeth before doing anything else in the morning and carry some gum with you in case of an emergency!
Take one last look in the mirror
- Take one last look in the mirror. Make sure you’re looking your best! Check your hair, makeup, and clothes for any stains or wrinkles. Your shoes should be clean and polished (you don’t want to ruin an interview by tripping on a loose shoelace). Finally, remember to wear accessories that show off your personality. A scarf or hat can make an outfit stand out; jewelry should complement rather than distract from the rest of what you’re wearing
Be mindful of how you look and smell before an interview
- Wear a suit. A well-tailored, flattering suit that fits you properly is often the best option for men with an interview. It shows respect for yourself and the company you’re applying to and shows pride in your appearance. A suit can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion, so it’s a great investment piece that will serve you well over time.
- Wear a tie and make sure it’s not too short or long! A good rule of thumb is to measure the bottom of your jacket while buttoned up, then add two inches (or more if it’s an especially conservative organization) to determine how long your ties should be when tied properly around your neck without any looseness at all no matter how much weight goes on or off throughout life’s transitions. Make sure clothes are clean and pressed: no stains or holes allowed! You don’t want anyone thinking there is any question as to whether or not they would hire someone who looks as though they have questionable hygiene skills; keep everything looking neat and tidy at all times. Make sure shoes are clean and polished: this includes both leather soles as well as non-leather soles like canvas shoes; nothing ruins an outfit faster than scuffed leather soles, so invest in some shoe cream today!
You may be nervous about the interview itself, but you can take comfort in knowing that there are things you can do to prepare yourself. By taking care of your appearance and hygiene, you’ll be able stand out as a confident professional who knows how important first impressions are.
