A sneak preview of the Interview dress guide
Are you looking to get a job, or do you have an interview coming up? If so, then this post really is going to be the holy grail for nailing one of the crucial steps in an interview, first impressions.
They always say that you should never judge a book by it’s cover, but 9/10 people usually do. In the modern world, appearance is virtually everything, so getting that first impression right is essential to hitting the interview nail, right on it’s head. But we all know, that’s easier said than done…
Obviously, I’m far from being an expert, but I think there’s kind of a philosophy when applying for a job. What I mean, is that when you apply for a job, you apply because you want the job, it’s very similar to playing a game, you play the game because you want to win. What I’m trying to say is that, you don’t apply for a job because you want to not quite get to the interview stage, or get beaten by someone else. You apply for the job because you want to win the job, and push all the other people out of the way.
So, the key to interview success is to go in there knowing what you want your outcome to be. Obviously, your not always going to get every job that you apply for, because other things may come in the way, such as experience and qualifications. But, if you go in there with a good amount of self confidence, belief and the right attitude, then you will have a much better chance of the getting the job. Someone once told me, that in an interview you may not remember what someone looked like, but you will always remember how they made you feel, and dressing is a big part of how someone first feels about you.
The only way to really get your head around this concept, is to think about life situations and how you react. Imagine, that your sitting in a lesson, and a new person walks in. All you know about this person so far, is what you can physically see. So, undoubtedly you are going to judge that person on what you can see, and if that’s someone that might be a bit unhygienic, or have horrible clothes on, then you may judge them and not want to get to know them, compared with someone who comes in smiling and looks nicely dressed. I met you would choose the second person, because they seem the better option than the first person. It just shows that even though you know nothing about them, you judge them on what they look like, and that’s exactly how an interview is.
So, to help you all out with really looking the part, Farfetch.com have created a guide to interview dressing. It really covers all bases regarding interview’s, from showing you exactly what you will need for an interview, to what shoes you will need to wear, what handbag to take, and what extra’s are always a good idea to have with you. But it’s not just any old boring interview guide, because it only covers creative jobs, the missing piece to interview dressing guides.
Also, boy’s don’t get writing it off just get, because there’s also a section for all your manly needs too, and I actually love some of the tips in the men’s section more than the women’s.
