Getting dressed for an interview in business attire

Author: Ashley Vukovich

 

When planning for a job interview, it can be overwhelming trying to find the perfect outfit that fits the company’s vision. You always want to make a great first impression, but the outfit you choose should depend on the company’s dress code that you’re interviewing for. You want to send your interviewer a message that you understand the role of the job you’re applying for. And that starts with what you’re wearing. I’m going to list a few tips on how to dress for your interview, depending on the type of dress code! 

 

  1. Generally, if the company you’re applying for calls for business attire, you will want to wear a suit. If a suit isn’t accessible to you, strive for slacks and a nice button-down shirt. You can find cost friendly items at Walmart, TJ Maxx, and Old Navy. 

  2. If you have a job interview in a more informal work environment, you might wear a business casual outfit. The work environment is usually more casual and that suit, but more formal than a t-shirt and jeans. Go for a look that includes slacks and a sweater, or a casual dress with a sweater. 

  3. It’s important to dress professional no matter the company’s environment, and you can still dress professionally even if the company calls for a casual dress code. While still maintaining that great first impression, you can strive to wear something like dark wash jeans and a sweater, or a casual dress with a jean jacket.
