DRESSING INAPPROPRIATELY: Though some industries allow for a more relaxed dress code, the general rule of thumb is to always dress professionally and modestly for an interview. Bright colors or busy prints, excessive jewelry or accessories, and casual attire can be distracting for interviewers and takes their attention away from your qualifications. Itâ€™s also important that your clothes are wrinkle-free and without stains. While a business suit is preferred, itâ€™s understandable that everyone might not have one, especially those just starting out. For men: dress slacks, a solid shirt, and tie are the minimal expectations. For ladies, dress slacks, skirts, and blouses are acceptable. Whatâ€™s most important is that nothing is too tight, too short, or too revealing. The way you dress for an interview is a direct reflection of your professionalism. Donâ€™t tarnish that image by dressing inappropriately.
