All said and done, you first impression does count. So, make sure you dress right so that your first impression become your last one.
1 Dress well:
Dressing a notch above the general dress code will show your interest in the position and the company too.
2 Go understated:
You never know what may be offensive to someone so it’s best to be conservative. Do not wear flashy jewellery, shoes or make-up.
3 Grooming matters:
The way you enter the room, sit and talk must reflect that you are well groomed with corporate etiquettes. Men should be properly shaved and dressed. Hair, hands and fingernails should be clean and neat.
4 Shoe style:
Closed-toed shoes for women and simple black loafers for men make for a good impression.
5 Practice hard:
Wear your interview outfit a couple of days before and practice speaking in front of mirror.
