What to wear to an interview
Going for an interview is always stressful, no matter if it’s your first or one hundred and first. It’s a process that most of us will have to go through at least once in our lives, if not more. In fact, whenever I meet with a potential client, I need to remember that the meeting is an interview. Whenever I attend a networking event or even a party, they are all types of interviews.
Since you’ll be stressed out enough on that day, why not have a checklist in order to help keep the guesswork out of what to wear. Keep everything neat and orderly in a structured bag. There’s nothing worse than seeing someone fumble through their papers, so it’s important to ensure that anything you might need is at your fingertips.
I’m a firm believer that you cannot look too professional at an interview, even if it’s for a creative position. For instance, I wore a skirt and blouse when I was applying to work at a gym, (after first making sure that I wouldn’t need to train anyone in my meeting). In other words, looking polished is a must. Taking this point one step further I like to dress for one position above the one I’m interviewing for. It shows your interviewer that you have done your research about the company and that you are ambitious and motivated.
