Student Perspective: Dressing for Interview Success

When applying for jobs we all want to stand out to possible employers. However, time and again, both men and women stand out for the wrong reasons in interviews; by committing multiple fashion faux pas they let their wardrobe choices stand out over their qualifications and skills for the job position.

Your first impression with a potential employer may be your only one. Therefore, make a great first impression by dressing both professionally and confidently for your job market. This article How to Dress for an Interview has specific guidelines for appropriate interview attire for both men and women, as well as informative videos that give a checklist to prepare for an interview weeks in advance.

With Career Development Services Career Expo coming up February 8 and 10, this is the perfect time to start preparing to make that great first impression on the company’s representatives that will be here in Auburn. Because who knows, they could turn out to be your future employer!
