You only have moments to make a good first impression so here is our advice on what to wear to get off to a good start when interviewing for a communications position:
- A suit is always appropriate. It conveys the message you are a professional and will take the job seriously. Choose a conservative color-black, navy or grey-which won’t distract the interviewer from focusing on your conversation and skills.
- It is better to be overdressed than underdressed for an interview, no matter what the culture of the organization and its dress code.
- Clean and pressed counts. The right suit, shirt or blouse can make the wrong impression if it’s wrinkled or has food stains.
