The Men's Guide to the Interview "Dress Code"
You landed the interview you really wanted, congratulations! Now it’s time to get dressed, and you’re faced with the question of.. “What am I supposed to wear?”. It doesn’t have to be an expense causing you to spend a ton money, there are resources (see below) out there to help. I think the best way to think about it is, wear what you would wear to church especially on a holiday. I took a look at a few articles, and these common themes around dressing for an interview:
Don’t forget that the candidates that come into an interview dressed for success tend to stand out from the rest. This could be the difference in whether or not you get the job! Good Luck!
On an interview you should wear...
What job you are interviewing for is the determining factor on what to wear to an interview, whether it be casual, business casual, or casual professional. At cengage learning, you should wear business casual, which consists of khakis, collared shirts, a belt and dress shoes for men. As for women, you could wear a conservative dress or dress pants and a blouse, with heels or other dress shoes.
Does your workplace have a dress code? Do you agree or disagree with the restrictions? If you disagree, what would you prefer the dress code to entail - more formal or less formal clothing? I found a cool article here that explains that most people with a dress code find it to be satisfactory...but I'm still not sure if I agree. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
What do you think?
A lady in England is getting a lot of attention on Twitter for her posts complaining that her employer sent her home for not wearing heels at the office. What do you think? Ridiculous employer? Or, Employers have right to require certain dress codes?
What IS professional attire??
So I’m signed up for the job fair and I have a question on what I should wear. I was told to wear “professional attire” but what does that really mean? When I worked at Subway that meant a subway shirt and hat.. I want to make a good impression here but I can’t afford buying a new suit for this. That’s why I NEED a job!!! Thanks in advance.
