What to Wear to a Job Interview

t’s completely normal to feel nervous before an interview! But what you wear can actually help boost your confidence. Here’s a rundown to guide you:

Check the company’s Dress Code

If possible, try to get a sense of how people typically dress at the company. A company website or social media pages might give you some clues. If it’s a conservative industry like finance or law, a suit is a safe bet. For a more casual tech startup, you might get away with business casual. When in doubt, it’s always better to err on the side of formality.

  • Make sure your clothes are clean, wrinkle-free, and fit well.
  • Keep jewellery and accessories to a minimum.
  • For your hair, up-dos, half up-dos, sleek ponytail or polished waves or curls without frizz are all great options for a polished look.
  • The most important thing is to feel confident in what you’re wearing. If you feel good about your outfit, it will show in your interview demeanour.
