Searching for a job, whether it’s your first or a new direction you’re looking to take in your career, it can be a laborious and on occasion, a frustrating experience. Sending out CV’s, reading through emails and looking through job adverts is all par for the course, but is all worth it when the call comes and it’s time for a job interview. Suddenly all of the work seems worth it and now it’s time to get out there and to impress.
There are few jobs on earth that are possible to get without first having to undertake some sort of an interview. Some can prove to be very formal; others can be the complete opposite and be very practical based. The important thing is to be yourself and to not try and be something you’re not, otherwise they can tend to go downhill quite quickly and be over before you know it.
One thing you can never be at an interview is too smart or well-presented. Even if you are applying for a job on a rubbish tip, taking care with your appearance will if anything, at least show your potential employers that you are serious about the job. Clean hair, being clean shaven and awake are a great place to start – something alot of men do tend to struggle with most days!
Getting the look ‘right’ for an interview is of course, important. The days of just putting on a suit, shirt and tie are coming to an end, now it has more to do with getting the right look for the company you are looking to join. This shouldn’t be used as an excuse to wear any old thing though, if anything it means more consideration is needed.
Clothes and appearance are a matter of taste, so when it comes to a job interview, playing it safe and airing on the side of caution is usually the best way to go. Ensuring that your clothes are clean and that you wear shoes that are in good condition should be a minimum. It is also important to not wear clothes you aren’t comfortable in, in an interview situation you want to be as comfortable as possible and give yourself the best possible chance.
To impress in an interview you don’t have to go all designer. Mixing and matching designer clothes with high street items can be just as effective. For men, investing in a good pair of shoes is usually not a bad idea as it is more or less guaranteed that they will get their money’s worth out of them.
Appearance isn’t everything, especially when applying for a job. However, it can put potential employers off and is a big part of the whole first impression. If you’re in doubt ask a friends opinion, yes, even if you are a man. Looking good may just be what spares you on to go that extra mile in the interview and land that dream job!
Look the part in your next job interview with a new pair of designer jeans, shoes and jacket.
