You never get a second chance to make a first impression. That’s what they say and you have got to agree it’s true. Whether you have been laid off by your previous employer or are looking for a new job altogether, it’s that interview we all dread. The point to note here is that whenever you go for a job interview, other than all the professional and smart talk that you definitely need to get across your employer’s head, you also need to look like you are capable of being hired.
What that means is that you need to look like the bestcandidate for the job. With so much competition flaring in from just about everywhere, you need to make sure you are not part of the employer’s tiny slip up which he or she may be always on the look-out for just so that the elimination process is far simpler for him or her. Just before a job interview or weeks before it, give yourself a confidence boosting make over! No, by that it isn’timplied to go give yourself electric blue streaks on or highlights on your head, but in fact, just an overall look booster that will make you look more energetic, confident and self-monitored and less insecure and fidgety
The aim is to look fit for the job, to wear the attire that will fit the culture of the company you have applied for. Let us start with the basics:
Accessories – It’s always good to add one or two of those extra features that will add more sophistication or amiableness to your over all look or personality. Even the pins or clips you choose to put up will either make or break your look. It’s better to keep these accessories minimal in order to avoid looking like a clown. Also, the colors you choose should be
Make up – Most of the ladies over do their make up thinking that will help make them look extra hot or desirable or whatever terminology they choose to associate with their “smokey make-up” look for that matter. But, in reality, employersare looking for someone who can look professional as well as presentable at the same time so you might want to keep it simple in this case. Specially for an interview, don’t go for dark tones, not on the lips, nor the eyes and not even on those cheekbones. It’s not a wedding or an engagement party ladies! Try to highlight those features of yours using the most natural colors possible. Go for Rimmel London, Maybelline or MAC nudes on the lips or a light shade of natural pink or rose and just one thin line of liner preferrable MAC liquid eyeliner. Don’t forget your mascara though because it helps give that extra touch of finish to the eyes.
Last but not the least, go for professional looking shoes and avoid high heels or stilettos. Make sure to wear good perfume and deodorant in order to bust those sweats that will most probably be on high just before your interview! Goodluck!
