Wardrobe Essentials for Your Next Interview

TalkShop job interview tipsBeing ready for an interview also means having the right wardrobe for it. Clothes do communicate a message. TalkShop CEO Sheila Viesca explains, “The way one presents himself creates an impression. Hence, it pays to invest in a few quality pieces that put together a winning look for an interview. After all, looking good is the essential first step in boosting one’s confidence.

Viesca shares her two cents worth on the wardrobe must have’s of anyone who wants to land a good job and make the right organizational fit:

1. Well-fitting clothes. A long-sleeved shirt and tie for men and a black dress or solid colored blouse with the right neckline (not over-decorated nor plunging), skirt or pants in the right length are appropriate.

2. Colors. Men can opt for black, blue, gray, and olive. Women can sport more color choices, but it is best to stick with pastel or neutral shades. Flashy colors distract.

3. Simple jewelry. Men are limited to a wedding band and a wristwatch. Women should wear simple accessories. It is advisable for both to use 3 sets at a time (earrings (for ladies), ring, wristwatch or necklace, earrings, wristwatch).

4. Scents. Use light scents. Remember that less is more. Better yet, go without it.

5. Good quality materials. Leather portfolio / bag and shoes. Invest in good bags and shoes. Keep your shoes buffed. Check that heels are not worn out.

6. Make-up for women. Apply face products to enhance your features. Essentials include a foundation as base, powder, eyebrow pencil, blusher, and lipstick. Choose suitable shades for your skin tone.

7. Hair. Men should be clean-shaven with their hair trimmed. Women should sport a conservative, neat-looking hairstyle.

Viesca reminds, “Compliment these with a nice smile, good attitude, correct posture and you are all set to ace the interview.
