A Good Investment 

It’s amazing how a really great outfit can make you look and feel like a million bucks.   Investing in one or two high quality interview outfits will help you look great on your interviews and will make you feel more confident when you go into employer’s offices to discuss how perfect you would be for the company.   Remember, in the interview, you are the product - you want your “packaging” to reflect the quality of everything you have to offer.    

Some people have a hard time parting with cash for good quality clothing. It can be a bit jarring to see how much more it costs to buy a good brand name suit than it does to buy everyday clothing or a similar suit from a discount or knockoff store, but you need to get over it.   This is one investment that will pay huge dividends in the end and you will wind up making use of it much more that you can imagine.   Resist the temptation to skimp and buy the best, highest quality, name brand clothing you can for your interview wardrobe. 

Don’t Forget the Accessories

Accessories can make or break the overall impression, and they deserve as much attention as the rest of your interview attire.  A great suit with a pair of old shoes (even if those shoes have been neatly buffed and shined) really spoils the whole effect.  Ditto for a belt in the wrong color or one that shows visible wear.  No matter how great the rest of the outfit is, the overall impression will be spoiled by these little details. 


It’s been said that you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes, and some people really believe this - maybe the interviewer is one of them. Make sure your shoes are saying good things about you. Invest in at least one good pair to go with your interview outfit. Make sure they are of high quality and are not made of synthetic materials.
