How To Dress For The Interview

This Is Much Like Creating Your Resume


If you read all of the advice given on creating a resume it seems like they always say that “a resume is not supposed to get you a job, it is supposed to get you an interview.” Well the advice worked now you have the interview, how should you dress?


First prepare. When you created your resume you prepared by writing down your work history, major accomplishments, your education, and more. You also researched the company that you sent the resume to so that you can get that interview; now use that research for the way you dress. I believe the best way to dress for an interview is to dress conservatively. However, that is not always the case. If you are applying for a job with a fast growing IT company maybe the navy suit is not what you wear.
