It’s hunting season: all the recent grads are looking to start their new career.
Its pretty cut throat out there. But i have some advice, as little as it may be!
Either you have “it” or you don’t. Interviews are black and white.
We have all been subjected to the mind-numbing repetitive interview questions. You are expected to give the standard correct answer with examples to back it up- You will be judged on any variation from that standard.
And the same goes for your interview fashion.
Black and White is the standard, and any variation from this standard you can bet the interviewer will be thinking more about what you are wearing than what you are saying.
There is nothing more fierce than a colour pant suit. It speaks to female power.
Think Samantha from Sex and the city.
But unless you have the extensive experience, references, and balls to back up this suit like Samantha could than its not the best idea to wear it for an interview.
But don’t be afraid!
Giving an answer that varies from the standard can make you stand out- But make sure it makes you stand out in a positive light.
The same goes for your outfit. A splash of colour can be refreshing to the monotone assembly line of interviewees.
This outfit represents perfectly what I’m talking about.
Walking into an interview in this outfit will be a breathe of fresh air to the interviewer.
But when you go and sit down the jacket comes off and the bag is put down. And all the interviewer will see is your classic black and white work outfit. So NOW they can concentrate fully on what you are saying.
This outfit will ensure you will be remembered visually and verbally (well that part is up to you!)
Good Luck out there.
