The Art Of Nailing Your Interview Look

The old rules of interview dressing have gone by the wayside. With so many different career opportunities, job titles, and growth of new industries those tried & true methods of nailing your interview look have been retired. The doors have been opened to get creative with your interview style and let your fashion sense shine thru.

There is a HUGE sense of relief with not having to look like a corporate drone, but as with any new found freedom, new problems and doubt pop up.  Now of course it doesn’t hurt to use basic common sense when deciding what to wear to that all important job interview- the 1st impression has as much impact as that impeccable resume, so with that said you can show off your fashion prowess while exercising restraint.  Carefully straddle the fence somewhere between individual expression and conservative.

When you go for an interview you obviously want a look that expresses the pro you are and shows you’re definitely a boss, a force to be reckoned with.

By wearing something that you feel amazing in there’s an extra little sparkle about you. Your aura is brighter and people can’t help but notice. Doesn’t it stand to reason if you look good, you’ll feel good and that’ll radiate confidence during the interview- how can that hurt?

Let’s look at ways you can show off your style and stand out without being toooo over the top.

Just remember when planning what you’ll wear to your next job interview consider the field you’re in and have a sense of what’s appropriate. You don’t have to sacrifice your own sense of style just to be taken seriously. A job interview is nerve wracking enough, so let your outfit be the one thing you don’t have to worry about. I hope these fashionable ideas were of help.
