[Fit & Fashionable] What to Wear to a Job Interview: MEN’S EDITION

First impressions matter most. Look your best at your job interview.

One of the most popular searches on Google is ‘What to wear to a job interview’. I will admit it’s a bit perplexing, because you don’t exactly get a wardrobe guide from the company you’re interviewing for. One of my professors in college told me that, “Even if you’re interviewing to work as a ditch digger, always look like you’re interviewing to become Chief Executive.” Basically what that means is when it comes to interviews, you must look your absolute best. If you already know that you should look ‘nice’, then you’re wrong. The key is to look professional. Being overdressed is better than being undressed.

Even if you feel overdressed for the job, you’re doing it right. Not one single employer will say, “You look too nice for the job.” Your outfit is the first thing your employer sees. It’s their first impression of you, and there’s no going back. You could have every qualification that the job entails, but it all depends on how your employer sees you. Once they’ve seen you in your outfit, they will make a mental note of what you wore to the interview, and it could very well affect their decision making process.

Now, this doesn’t mean you have to wear a suit, fellas. Although if you want to, then go for it! Feeling great about what you’re wearing will certainly boost some confidence in yourself, and may even get you the job. Adding your own touch of uniqueness to your outfit, like a tie, will get you noticed by your employer. Even though looking professional is important, the most important thing is looking like yourself.

Here are some great men’s items that will help you out with your job hunt!
