Dress Code For Interview Success: Myths and Tips [Infographic]

When attending interviews, a poor physical appearance can send the wrong message to employers. Taking the time and effort to choose the right outfit for the interview may not seem as important as practicing your interview questions, but it can certainly make a big difference. Sometimes it may even be the only thing stopping you from getting a job.    

As first impressions are often made within the first 90 seconds, employers can usually tell if you are serious about a job from the way you are dressed and present yourself. If employers aren’t satisfied with your appearance the minute you walk into the interview room, it will be more difficult for you to convince them you are a good fit for the job.  

While a lot has been said, over the years, about how you should dress for a job interview, there are also many myths. That’s probably because there is no one way to dress appropriately for an interview. This handy infographic from StoreStream addresses these myths in an attempt to help you decide on an outfit that will make you look your best!
