Ladies, dont bring a purse if it
doesnt 100% match the outfit or looks at all worn or dirty. Unless you really need it, leave it in the car. Designer bags are fine, but make sure its the
real deal. By now many people can spot a fake
Louis Vuitton from across the block, and thats not the impression you want to make.
You are going to need something to carry
copies of your resume, pens and paper, letters
or reference and any other items you will be bringing to the interview. This should look
as good as every other part of your interview outfit and be in a color that coordinates
with it. A leather portfolio with a tablet is
a good lightweight option for carrying your materials.
If you will be bringing a briefcase, take a high quality leather or fabric tote or
messenger bag. Stay away from the big boxy
old-fashioned briefcases and anything in fake leather. As with everything else, make sure
that it doesnt look scuffed, worn, or dirty.
Guys, if you have one belt you wear rain
or shine youre going to have to leave it at home for the interview. You need to invest in a good quality belt to go
with that fabulous suit and/or business casual outfit unless you want your million dollar
outfit will look like something from a thrift store. Pick
something that will go well with the shoes you will be wearing like a black leather belt
with a simple buckle. If you already have a
belt you could wear, give it a good visual inspection to make sure that the metal color is
consistent on the buckle (it hasnt worn off in any areas) and that the leather on
the belt isnt cracked or worn looking anywhere.
If it doesnt look perfect, get a new one to wear just on interviews.
Jewelry and Watches
Ladies, if you will be wearing jewelry,
keep it simple & well matched for the interview. Dont wear a lot of different
pieces that dont go together, or, for that matter, a lot of different pieces that do
go together. Keep it simple so the focus will be on you and your skills, not your
