Some “Tips from Terry” for dressing for success
- Do your homework. Don’t know much about the company? Research to find out what the dress code is. Go on the company’s website and look for photos or videos of employees. Ask a college alumni or friend who’s worked there and model yourself accordingly.
- If you still don’t know, overdress. Dress one level above what the employees at the company wear on a day-to-day basis. This might just set you apart as being more successful if your confident.
- Pay attention to details. ALWAYS look polished! Don't show up wrinkled, stained, ripped or in ill-fitting clothing. ALWAYS be well groomed. Consider keeping a small grooming kit with you for any last-minute touch-ups you may need.
- Find your style and wear what makes you feel confident. You want the interviewer to focus on you. When you love how you look, you’ll have your individual “It factor.” Your awesomeness will speak for itself through the answers you give throughout the interview. Also, invest in good, classic accessories.
- Wear understated fragrances. Once you’ve showered, shaved and applied deodorant, avoid the urge to “bathe yourself in cologne or perfume.” Wear only elegant, refined, and understated fragrances. Again, you want to be remembered for your skills. Not your scent.
- Have a dress rehearsal. Try on your interview clothes few days before the interview. You’ll prevent possible wardrobe malfunctions and give yourself the time to make any possible alterations and or fixes.
