Attire Tips

What you wear to an interview has an enormous impact on the first impression you make on the interviewer and will greatly influence how you are perceived.

When dressing for an interview it is wise to err on the conservative side. By dressing in conservative business attire when interviewing, you are demonstrating respect for the company and for the interview opportunity, as well as your ability to dress appropriately in social business situations. Even if the interviewer is dressed in business casual attire, you will want to wear business professional attire. Consider purchasing a raincoat or all-weather coat. It’s better to have an overcoat than to have your suit drenched.
