HOW TO LOOK LIKE THEIR NEXT HIRE
Updated: Apr 3, 2020
Dress for success
Studies show that it takes a potential employer only 2.2 seconds to judge your appearance. Your appearance can leave a lasting first impression. Managers feel appearance gives them insight into the candidate as a professional and how they will behave, appear and react on the job. A simple, clean look with neutral colors will take the attention away from what your wearing and direct attention to what you’re saying.
A note to the ladies from one of our recruiters:
“As a woman, I know how difficult it is to decide what to wear – especially for important events. We all want to look classy, stylish yet professional, but what does that really look like, right? There are some basic standard rules that you should always apply when dressing for an interview.
To clarify the graphic below, “simple, conservative” hair means that short hair can be left neatly parted and long hair should be pinned out of the face. “Fitted” means not baggy, but also leave room for you to breathe, walk, and sit. Skirts should never fall above the knee; trust me, you don’t want to have to fidget with a skirt when you’re trying to make a good impression. On that note, don’t wear heels higher than two inches, no matter how confident you are in your stilt walking. Good luck!”
