Why Looking Gaudy Can Cost You The Job

TalkShop job interview tipsGetting ready for the job interview? What comes to mind first is how to present one’s self with the appropriate clothes. After all, one should look the total package with a polished, professional look that conveys confidence.

What is the polished look? Sheila Viesca, TalkShop CEO advises, “Keep it subtle and tasteful.” She shares the following tips:

1. One’s hair should be neat-looking, trim, and well-combed. Do away with striking colors or hair streaks that can cheapen your overall appearance.

2. For clothes, aim for simple lines. Avoid wearing too many colors, prints, and patterns. They make it difficult to communicate decency.

3. Refrain from using too much jewelry. As a rule, it is best not to wear flashy, heavy, clunky accessories.

4. Body piercings and tattoos are a no-no.

5. Choose eye glasses in conservative styles.

Viesca adds, “The workplace is not the place to experiment loud fashion statements. In choosing jewelry, accessories, and scents, remember less is chic, less is more. It pays at the onset and all throughout your career to look your best as you dress for success.
