It’s common sense that the outfit you choose will depend on the position you are applying for. But are there any common guidelines for interview style?
According to the image consultant Brenda Fergusson, there is a simple rule of thumb to apply here.
.“If you are interviewing for a professional, managerial, or executive position, always wear a suit.
“If the position is more casual, you should still dress professionally, wearing a ‘business casual’ crisp outfit. Crisp meaning no wrinkles, stains, lint, holes, or snags. Absolutely no jeans for any jobs you are interviewing for even if you talk to people who are currently wearing jeans to work. They already have the job; you don’t yet.” Basically, this is a good principle to stick to.
