If you are attending for a job interview then you will want to ensure that you give yourself the best chance of success. You'll certainly have brushed up on any questions you may be asked about your experience and qualifications for the job.

However if your qualifications and abilities are the same as the next applicant it will be your appearance that can tip the balance in your favor. This article will offer you helpful guidelines to ensure that your appearance will work for you at that all important job interview.

You only have one chance at making a first impression, so your first impression needs to be entirely favorable.

General dress style

You need to be sensitive to the job role for which you are applying. For example should you be applying for the role of personal assistant to a managing director you need to tailor your appearance to exude an air of efficiency and smartness. However if you are applying to an independent record company that promotes hip-hop and garage music your dress style should be entirely different.

So do your homework. However one very useful tip is to avoid extremes - don't outdress the interviewer! Imagine applying to a female office manager - if your outfit looks a million dollars and she is wearing standard work clothes, your chances are slim right from the outset. You should always aim for neatness but neutrality.
