DO:

Choose an outfit that matches the company culture and dress code. You want the interviewer to see that you are ready for your first day of work and will be a good fit for the company’s culture.

DON’T:

Disregard anything that reveals too much. Short, sheer, and skin-tight clothing pieces are definitely prohibited.

DO:

Stick with natural colors that speak to your core strengths the most. Colors such as black, grey, and navy blue shows that you’re conservative and mature. Your color choice should play up to the interview vibe that you’re going for.

DON’T:

Refrain from wearing over the top nail art to a job interview. It could be distracting to the interviewer and overall look very unprofessional.

DO:

Take it easy on the perfume and cologne, as you never know if your interviewer might have an allergy or aversion to strong scents.
