How to dress for an interview

Here are a few tips to ensure that you are looking and feeling at your best at your next interview.

Young people who are new to the workforce and are hunting for apprenticeships in Queensland often underestimate the power of a good impression.

However the truth is that the way you present yourself for an interview is hugely important, which is why it is worth taking the time to think carefully about the clothes that you are going to wear when you go in for your first face to face meeting with an employer.

For entry level positions, there is no need to go out and purchase a suit and tie. Instead, you simply want to make sure that you look clean and tidy.

Men will want to wear a buttoned up, collared shirt that has been carefully ironed, while women should take care to wear slacks or a skirt that extends below the knee.

Make sure there aren’t any offensive designs or patterns on your person and always make sure you are wearing presentable, clean shoes.

You should be well groomed as well, and it may well pay to go get a haircut a few days before your interview in order to ensure you are looking and feeling your best.

Employers often interview dozens of potential candidates for a role, and anything that can make you stand out from the crowd in a good way is a positive thing.

For that reason, you would much rather be overdressed than underdressed.
