Suit Up!

Just as the pros in sports do, suiting up is an essential part of the game!

As a recruiter, it’s my job to get the best potential candidates scheduled for formal face-to-face interviews. I do inform candidates that it will be business professional and I can’t tell you how many candidates we have show up business casual or no “business” at all. Remember the saying, dress for the job you want, not the job you have?

*According to Kim Zoller at Image Dynamics, 55% of another person's perception of you is based on how you look.

*Below are some tips to help you win the interviewing game:

• Solid color, conservative suit
• Coordinated blouse
• Moderate shoes
• Limited jewelry
• Neat, professional hairstyle
• Sparse make-up & perfume
• Portfolio or briefcase
• Conservative tie
• Dark socks, professional shoes
• Go easy on the aftershave

Wearing a suit is essential to scoring that homerun of first impressions!
