Snagged an Interview? Look the part

Getting invited for an interview is really exciting! However, amidst that excitement, there can be a lot of anxiety, nervousness and uncertainty. Hopefully this will help you to relax.
All interviews, whether it is for a job or  placement in a school, has essentially the same aim - to see who is the best fit for the position. Your goal is to prove that you are!
In doing so, there are set guidelines that should be followed; dress code is one of those important guidelines.

Dress Code
Ever heard the phrase, "first impressions last"?  It's true, and you should be ready to impress and look the part. Remember though, that you have applied for a position as a professional student and should look as such.

Keep it simple. Wear a nice suit, whether a skirt or a pant suit. Go for conservative colors like blacks, grays, navy blues and browns. If you need to wear jewelry, wear a simple watch, knobs - keep accessories to a minimum. If you must wear make-up, keep this light as well. Wear comfortable shoes and keep your hair neat and tidy.

Again, keep it simple. A two-piece matched suit is always the best choice. Don't mix and match jackets and pants. Wear conservative colors like blacks, navy blues and grays. If you must wear a tie, keep it simple. do not opt for fancy. A nice watch can be worn. Wear a belt that will compliment your outfit and ensure that your shoes are well polished. Also, keep you hair neat and tidy and your face properly groomed.

Happy Friday Follow, following you. Hope you can find time to stop by me, maybe enter my give-away! Nice to meet you. Oh yeah, been there done that. I was a legal secretary before I went on disability & I remember those interviews I hated them. I couldn't wait to get a job just so I wouldn't have to do that.
