In the current employment market, making a positive impression on a job interview is key to landing your dream job. First impressions are lasting and can give you an edge over a competitor or leave the employer with a less than positive impression. Here are a few tips to ensure you present yourself as a dedicated professional.
Classic suits such as Hugo Boss or Armani are the best option for an interview and can be worn with a pant or skirt. Choose a grey or navy suit- these are confident colours and always in season.
Avoid dresses and bright colors. The colour red in particular, according to The Ladders career website, is an inappropriate choice for a first interview. Dresses are viewed as too casual an option, unless it is a tailored dress such as from designers Hugo Boss or Armani.
Low or medium heel shoes are a good choice and can be closed or open toe as long as you have a professional pedicure.
Accessories and jewelry should be subtle, keeping the focus on you. Avoid loud colours of nail polish as this can be distracting.
In the Alberta climate, do not forget the importance of a professional coat and handbag to finish off your interview look. Often your interviewer will first meet you with your coat on. Keep your look consistent and ensure your coat is appropriate.
