Interview Pro Tip #4
Plan your best interview wardrobe the night before.
In an interview you want to put your best foot forward and as they say your only get one chance to make the first impression. The last thing you want to worry about right before your interview is what you are going to wear. No need to panic trying to find the right power tie or bright white shirt when your mind should be focused on crushing interview questions and establishing rapport with hiring managers. Take the time the night before to make sure everything you wear is just right, pressed, clean and easy to find. When concerned about being too dressed up or too casual error on the side of dressed up. You can always take off your coat or roll up your sleeves if the environment seems more casual however the reverse is not possible, you can’t dress up an outfit that is dressed down to match a formal setting. With that being said, if you are interviewing for a position as a camp counselor, a suit will make you look like you showed up to the wrong place for the wrong job. Wear clothes that resemble the outfits of the people that work at that company or that industry. How do you know what that is? A great place to start is the company website or even better a company social media page. These will usually be filled with more candid or spontaneous pictures of their employees at work.
