Just a few days back I was recruiting some people for my company when I realized that how important it is to be well presented in an interview. In fact the tone for an interview is set the moment some one steps in for the interview. Dressing well will not get you the job in the interview. However, if you want to have an edge over the others, the right dress is very important for the perfect interview.
In fact, the way you dress is very much the same as the way you write the first line of your application. It sets up the tone. And that is always going to be important. It creates the first impression about you. So, make sure that you have dressed accordingly for your interview. Well, you may argue whether the outer appearance can always reflect the skills that you possess.
True, but at the same time, your outer appearance does play a very important role in reflecting the personality that you have. Your taste, your style and your dress reflects your sincerity, your outlook and these are very important factors that the recruiters are keen to check before hiring a person. Thus, you chewing the gums at the time of interview may not impress the recruiters since it does not offer a positive impression about your sincerity. So, be careful to make the right appearance in the interview. It’s not only about the dress; it’s about the way you look.
Remember, the recruiters are always in a hurry when they have to recruit. Therefore, they don’t want to spend too much of time to check out the candidates thoroughly. So, you have very little chance to impress them and you have to do this at the first go. So, dress to impress.
