Job interviews can be tricky things. You’ve got to be confident without appearing arrogant, bold without being too bold, friendly without being familiar and somehow, you just have to leave a favorable impression. Sounds tough?
Well, we can definitely help you crack one part of it and that’s how to dress! Looking good makes all of us feel good so that will certainly set the right tone.
It all depends on what kind of profile you are looking to fit into. If it’s a creative role that you seek, being adventurous and avant-garde in dress is perfectly acceptable, probably desirable! On the other hand, if you’re dressing up for a managerial job, it might make more sense to be seen as someone who can rise above personal preferences and opinions and handle a team. Ok, we’re kidding, dressing up is also partly an expression of who we are, so the last thing you would want to do is try to be someone you’re not. But all said and done, cracking a job interview, especially at the entry level, is about convincing a potential employer about being capable of handling a role you haven’t yet actually handled. So you do need to assure an employer that you do know what you are getting into!
Interns need to be seen as reliable and dependable and above all else, enthusiastic. Wearing an outfit that’s simple and won’t get in the way of your job is important. Just an example, if you’re in a social enterprise and looking at working in rural areas, it might help to dress conservatively, so villagers feel more comfortable with you. Yes, dressing professionally is also to make your team and those you work with feel easy with you — it’s not always about what you prefer. On the other hand, if it’s an urban job in city setting, your dress could be as sophisticated as corporate culture permits.
