You prepare and prepare for a job interview. But do you prepare what you’re wearing, too? “Huffington Post” asked a bunch of job search experts what they think are the biggest unspoken rules about what you should wear for a job interview.
- When in doubt about dress codes, look at social media photos or directly ask recruiters. Take a look at what current employees at the company wear.
- Don’t wear pajamas or sweatpants to a video interview, even if you think the interviewer can only see your upper half. Even if it’s virtual, still dress up.
- Your clothes can signal how seriously you are taking the interview. Too casual can give the assumption you’re not really excited about the opportunity.
- It’s better to be safe than sorry and err on the side of dressing more professionally. The pandemic may have relaxed workplace dress codes, but for an interview, be true to your personality and safe for work.
- If the dress code really bothers you, that’s a sign this job may not be right for you. A job interview is a two-way street, you are interviewing the job, too, to see if it’s a good fit!
