Four Ways to Present Yourself as Well as You Can at Your Next Job Interview

When you go on a job interview, it’s important to do everything that you can to be as confident as possible. The better you look and more prepared you are, the more confident you’ll feel. Unfortunately, there are some things that don’t look as great on one person as they do on another. The following guide walks you through a few ways you can make sure you look as dapper as possible when you go to your interview.

Consider Your Hairstyle

While a sloppy, messy do may work for every day, casual occasions, it doesn’t work for business professionals. You need to have a hairdo that looks well kept, concise, and well maintained. On many men, a short haircut is often best because it can be hard to make a bun or ponytail look overly professional. If you want to be taken seriously, you should also avoid dying your hair bold colors that aren’t commonly found in nature. Most professional businesses don’t consider pink, purple, or green hair to be a professional look.


Consider Your Accessories

When you go to your interview, you need to be prepared to have it indoors or outdoors. Bring along a pair of men’s celebrity sunglasses to wear during the interview to accentuate your look. Be sure that the glasses aren’t overly large in size or they may be distracting to the interviewer and consider removing them once the interview begins. It’s also a good idea to wear dress shoes to the interview, rather than tennis shoes. Some businesses allow employees to wear attire that is considered business casual, but that doesn’t mean that it should be worn to the interview.

Wear Well Fitting Clothing

When you go to the interview, the clothes you wear should fit you well. You don’t want the pants to be baggy and sag down below your waist. You also don’t want the items to be so tight that you cannot bend over or move around freely in them. If you do not have clothing that fits you properly, have the items tailored to fit your body. Most tailors can alter a suit within a few days so that you can look your best when you go to the interview.

Be sure to have the items dry-cleaned and pressed before the interview. Taking the time to ensure your appearance is as great as it can be will show the interviewer that you’re serious about the job. People who show up in wrinkled, ill-fitting clothing often make a very poor first impression.

Practice Answering Interview Questions

When you go to the interview, you need to be as comfortable as you can be. Practicing common interview questions can help you to be more relaxed when the day finally arrives. You may want to do some research on the business that you’ll be interviewing with to make sure the way you answer the questions pertains to the work that is done at their particular business.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions during the interview. You want to be sure that you know what will be expected of you if you do get the job and how much you’ll be paid. There are many businesses that don’t disclose what the exact pay is for a job until they’ve chosen a candidate. This ensures that they don’t have a barrage of people applying for a job that they aren’t qualified for simply because of the pay rate that is being offered by the company.
