No event creates as much stress in a man’s life as an impending interview. We understand the importance of turning up dressed just right so as to make a positive impression on the interviewer. But in a sea of vast sartorial choices, where do you even begin?
Start with research
A bit of research will tell you exactly what works best at the company you are interviewing for. Go through the Linkedin or Facebook pages and check out the pictures of company events to get a general idea. If you live near the office, you can wait around to see how the employees come into work every day. And finally, if you know someone who works at the office, you can drill them for all the details.
Here we have curated three looks for three popular dress codes:
There are traditional companies that follow the formal dress code. This is more so when their employees directly interact with customers and therefore represent the company on a day to day basis, e.g. banking, finance, law, and government. Exude authority and professionalism by pairing a solid navy or dark grey single-breasted suit with a classic dress shirt in white or light blue. Accessorise with a complementing skinny or regular tie and black or brown leather Oxfords.
