This week, I thought we’d talk about interviewing. Whether you’re a first-time job-seeker or a seasoned pro, the majority of us will need to interview for a new job at some point in our careers. And knowing what to wear and how to present yourself is valuable information.
Most of the advice will focus on job seekers in professional offices where traditional attire is required. However, I know that other readers will need advice for creative or casual environments, so we’ll talk about that too. I think it will be a good refresher for those of us who have done this a few times, and a helpful introduction for readers who are just starting out.
Choosing a suit for interviews? You want something basic that is also impeccably tailored. Whether your spending a mint or pinching your pennies, and interview suit should be a blank canvas that let’s you shine through.
As to color, black, grey, and navy are preferred. For an all-season suit, I prefer navy.
Banana Republic also makes a decent-quality suit. If you can catch it on sale, you can get a good deal.
