Dressing for Success - What to Wear to an Interview

People say that moving house is the most stressful thing a person can do, but in my opinion job interviews come a close second. We’ve all been there, and as such we all know that it’s important to dress appropriately.

Of course, ‘appropriately’ is entirely subjective and depends on the type of job you are going for.

If it is a traditional professional job like banking or legal then it is appropriate to wear a suit, shirt, and tie and clean shoes - it's surprising how many people will look at your footwear. If your potential job is in a more creative area then you can afford to dress more casually, though never scruffily.

What is important is that whatever you choose to wear, ensure you feel comfortable in it, that way your personality will shine through.

To help give you an edge, why not head over to the Hackett website and peruse some of the business shirts and ties available? While success is not guaranteed, classic British style most certainly is.
