6 Things you Should not Wear on a Job Interview
Too Much Makeup
Keep your makeup as light as possible. You don’t want to distract your interviewer with your bright lips and eyes.
Too Many Blings
Basic accessories like watch, ring, chain and stud will suffice. Avoid big statement jewelries. Your goal is to look simple and sophisticated
Sky High Heel
Wear small heels in which you will be able to walk faster and feel comfortable. Don’t wear too huge heels and trip!
Avoid revealing clothes like short skirts, deep neck blouse or figure hugging dress. You shouldn’t be conscious about adjusting your dress all time. Wear something which is neat and doesn’t requires too much attention.
Strong perfume or cologne can be avoided. First thing, it will distract your interviewer and secondly you will never know if your interviewer is allergic to strong scents. Either way, don’t let your perfume overwhelm you!
We understand the summer out there! You don’t have to buckle up in a suit and tie, but maintain a little bit of professionalism by not wearing a funky sneaker or flip top!
How to ACE an Interview
Job interviews aren’t fun for anyone. Everyone feels the same sense of delight when you find out an employer wants you to come in for an interview, but soon the nerves kicks in.
We’ve created a fact sheet of tips to help you ace that interview
Know your Facts
Do your research! Before stepping foot in the interview room, you must first learn more about the company. Use the resource that you have such as search engines, their website, news outlets, social medias and inside knowledge.
Know the Job
Although you may think that you know all about the job you have applied for don’t let that stop you from learning more about it. An interviewer is going to ask you why you want that job.
Make a Good First Impression
First impressions last! If you do not make the right one you are less likely to get the job. Make sure to smile and be yourself. If you try too hard and are not yourself, an interviewer will be able to see it.
Be Confident But not Cocky
It may seem hard to do this but you need to get the balance right. Be confident and be aware of your strengths. Although an interview is a chance to really sell yourself, it’s also important to acknowledge your weaknesses and to know how you deal with them.
Look the Part
Looks aren’t everything, but first impressions are! Being presentable is key, if an employer thinks you look smart they are going to get that professional opinion of you. Not only this but you also have to carry yourself in a professional manner. So essentially this means no hoodies and no slouching!
Plan the Day Before
Be prepared, you need to make sure you are ready! There is no use trying to cram in a load of research in the morning – you need the day before to prepare yourself so you are calm the morning of your interview.
Engage with the Interviewers
Eye contact, handshakes, head nods – just a few of the things you can do during your interview that will make your interviewers feel like it is a two-way conversation and not just them questioning you. If you can engage well with an interviewer they will feel a stronger connection with you rather than someone who answers abruptly and waits for the next question.
