It’s often said that hiring decisions can be made within the first few seconds of an interview, which means what you wear and making a good first impression can have a big impact on your chances of success.
It is important that you strike the right balance between looking professional and fitting in with the company’s brand and ethos. Spend some time on their website and social media pages to get a feel for this. If you are using a recruitment company such as Meridian Business Support, they will be able to advise you further.
Be wary of the term ‘business casual’ you still need to look smart. Avoid jeans, t-shirts and trainers, but bear in mind who you are interviewing for.
Most importantly, wear something you are comfortable in. If you are unable to breathe or feel self-conscious, it will affect your performance and will probably be picked up on by the interviewer.
