How to Dress for Job Opportunities

Polish Your Professional Appearance

It makes sense to dress your best for the interview, regardless of the dress code at the organization. If you’re in doubt about how to dress for an interview, it is best to dress to impress. Keep your personal appearance professional!

Remember: You only have one chance to make a positive first impression and capture job opportunities.

Wear business-like attire, avoid flashy colors, bold prints, logos and keep jewelry to a minimum. Wear clothes in which you feel comfortable. If it’s questionable, then you probably shouldn’t wear it.
