5 tips on how to dress for a successful job interview

Romana Janeckova

Your CV has convinced and you are invited to a personal interview - congratulations! In order to get your dream position, a careful preparation is necessary. It is not only important to research what exactly the company is doing, but also to consider which questions could be discussed and which topics could be addressed - because the main focus is on you.

The time when a an elegant suit in shades of grey was the only right choice for a job interview is long gone. Today, jobseekers can pursue their individual tastes to differentiate themselves from other applicants - but today, as in the past, HR managers pay close attention to what a candidate wearing during the interview.

We've put together 5 tips to help you choose your outfit for the day.

Note the circumstances

Some things should be self-evident - for example, it is clear that an applicant chooses a different outfit for a CFO position than a candidate applying to be a stylist. It seems just as inappropriate when an applicant wears a light, flowered dress for a job interview that takes place in the middle of winter.

What does the company expect?

Regardless of your outfit, it is very important that you research the most important facts about the company. In addition to interesting information and important milestones of the company, you can also inform yourself about the dress code - with this basis you can convince!

Choose too much rather than too little

As for the outfit, the phrase 'less is more' can be reworded - more can mean more here. If you are not sure, choose the more conservative option. Decide on the black boots and the dark skirt that goes up to the knees. Play it safe and put on a jacket instead of just a shirt. Even a tie is always the right choice - but if you decide to go for a wooden bow tie instead, you can make your outfit unique and stand out from all the others.

Ask others for professional advice

It is no shame to ask if we are not sure about something. Or is it worth it for you to lose the chance of a position just because you're telling yourself that you have everything under control and can not overcome yourself to ask? In most shops today you will find experienced sales people who can advise you in the selection. You have nothing to lose.

The choice of accessories with attention to detail

Although small accessories give you the chance to show your individuality, you should not overdo it. We recommend keeping the accessories elegant and minimalist. For example, with our BeWooden Card Holder - handmade and with a minimalist design, it becomes a unique accessory that emphasizes your unmistakable style and attention to detail.

We are sure that these tips will help you achieve your dream position.
Good luck!
