Just because you can’t be face to face during your interview doesn’t mean you can’t dress for success! A virtual interview should be treated just like any other. It’s important to prepare what you will wear so you can look your best and feel confident!
Manicured nails (avoid chipped and overly bright nail polish, think neutrals)
Stick with solids
Avoid crazy bright colors or patterns that will take the focus off of your face and place it onto your clothes.
Avoid distracting accessories
Keep jewelry to a minimum and leave your flashing musical tie for the holiday parties. Also stay away from anything super shiny that will mess up the light on the camera!
Dress 100% for the interview
During a video interview, it’s true that the screen will only show a certain portion of your body, but it’s important to avoid wearing a professional top and something less professional on your legs such as sweat pants.
You never know if you may need to stand up to grab something or the camera may move to reveal that you aren’t dressed appropriately. Besides, dressing 100% head to toe for the interview will allow you to get in the zone, feel confident, and know that this is a real opportunity.
Iron and lay out your outfit the night before
Save yourself time in the morning by preparing your outfit ahead of time! Spend the time prepping and relaxing for a bit before your conversation.
