5 Things to Remember for a Job Interview

Sad to say, we only get one shot at first impressions. And mind you,  first impression do lasts especially when you are having a job interview.

Dressing to impress is important  for a reason because it is the first thing that the interviewer sees and notices about you. Before you shake his/her hands and before you can utter a greeting, the interviewer is already assessing your character through your outfit.

So if you’ve been waiting for a job interview, here are five tips that can help you overcome interview jitters.

1. No statement accessories

Go easy on your accessories.  Your future employer might be blinded with your bling blings and will lose focus on you. Stick to a few pieces like a bracelet, a watch and a necklace.

2. Go conservative

Remember no showing off cleavage and no see through clothes (unless you’re applying as a runway model). Companies are still conservative when it comes to dressing up for work. They still prefer knee length skirts and not too revealing tops.

3. Bag

What should be in your bag during an interview? You should have a copy of your resume in case the interviewer misplaced the resume and other essentials.

4. Proper hygiene

Take a shower, press your clothes, trim your nails and put on some make up. Keep your face fresh and don’t overdo your makeup. Lipstick, a powder and a blush on is enough for your interview.

5. Put on a blazer

Look smarter and professional when you complete your outfit with a blazer. Choose neutrals with your blazers for your job interview. You can wear colored blazers later on once you are already part of the company.

And there you have the tips.  Hopefully, these can help you nail that job interview. Good luck!

    This is all so true and helpful. I went to a lot of job interviews about 1.5-2 years ago and it was so scary. I’m so relieved I don’t have to now (lets just hope it stays that way).
