Interviewing for a new job can be a stressful experience, especially when it's your first interview. Regardless of how well you feel you might have done, there are things that can go into your favour to strengthen your impact on the interviewer.
When it comes to interview clothes, the bottom line is that you want to look professional and clean. Nothing is worse than a sloppy appearance during an interview. To help you make the most of your professional image, here are some tips on how to dress for an interview:
- if you're interviewing for a sales position, you should wear business attire such as a Kurta with straight narrow pants. You don't want to show up in jeans or t-shirt because it will make you appear unprofessional and careless.
- If it's a casual meeting (like at a coffee shop), then wear Midi dress (Ankle length) or A-line flared kurta with cotton pants.
- If you want to show up little trendy, you can wear calf length cotton printed tops with cotton pants or you can carry with jeans also.
There are some basic rules for dressing for an interview that can help you to make a great first impression.
- Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.
- Be yourself and professional at the same time.
- Dress in a way that shows you respect the office and its culture, but also expresses your individuality and personality so that it reflects who you are as an individual and shows how well you fit into this environment (and vice versa).
- Consider how your personal style might be different from your prospective employer's style or company culture — even if it's just a few different ways of doing things — and dress accordingly, so they're not disappointed by how much they're going to have to work with in terms of changing their own style or culture to accommodate yours.
Keep in mind that how you dress plays a big role in an interview. It is important that you create a very positive first impression. First impressions are not so easy to change, so make sure to choose the right outfit for your interview. Use these tips and make a strong first impression with your interviewer.
