What to wear at a job interview

Dress for success!

Recruiters will tell stories of how some candidates will show up to an interview wearing jeans, sweat suits, sneakers, pierced body parts, chewing gum, showing up in rumpled clothes, or some other poor manner. Such poor dress costs some candidates the job.

It does make a difference how you dress and act. In conservative business climates it can be very important while in more relaxed environments it isn't quite as important but still important. So it makes sense to dress your best for the interview. When in doubt it is better overdress than under-dress.

People form opinions based on how you look.

Tips for dressing for success without necessarily spending much money:


  • Conservative suit, solid color, with coordinated blouse
  • Limited jewellery
  • Neat hair
  • Limited make-up & perfume
  • Manicured nails


  • Conservative suit, solid color, with a white long sleeve shirt and conservative tie
  • Dark socks and clean shoes
  • Limit jewellery
  • Neat hair
  • Trimmed fingernails
