Selling Your Strengths

The Job Interview

A Head-to-Toe Look

Ginger Broslat | 11/8/2013

Women
A two-piece matched suit is a safe choice. Or wear a jacket, with a skirt or trousers, in conservative colors, like taupe, navy, black or gray. Leave your super high heels at home.

Men
The clothing can be as simple as a long sleeve shirt and khakis; or wear a tie, sports jacket and dress shoes. Again, a matched suit is the safest choice.

DON'T BRING

• Gum
• Cellphone or iPod

• Coffee or soda

AVOID

• Piercings other than ears
• Heavy cologne or perfume
• Large handbag

• Low-cut blouse or high-cut skirt

TATTOOS - Cover them up for the interview.

Ballot Box

Superbowl Poll: My favorite thing about the big game is:

  • The game itself (go team!)
  • Partying with friends (and the food + drink)
  • Watching commercials or halftime
  • Nothing, not into it
