girlsack:

I can no longer give you specific outfit ideas for interviews. I have done it in the past, and I cba to link the posts to every single interview question I receive. I instead am going to give you this:

Reverse your role here for a second. You are the employer and you are waiting for your potential employee to arrive for his/her interview. What do you want this individual to wear? How do people of this certain workplace dress? Is it formal? Business casual? Or extremely casual? What’s the occasion of this job? Office work? Sales floor? 

Main thing about getting dressed for interviews is that it’s okay for you to overdress. It’s always okay for you to be overdressed. For example, would you rather go to a social event and be the only guy in a t shirt and jeans, or the only guy in a suit? Honestly, I would go with the latter.

Keep your hair neat, make sure there are no visible wrinkles on your bottoms, stop biting your nails, and go for a strong, firm handshake.

Well said, I just ignore all the messages/emails now about:

  • where to buy a cheaper version of what I posted - seriously..
  • what is the “perfect” suit
  • what do I (me) do for a living
  • who is MeerCat Red etc
  • which tailor to use in HKG - & the best is who is the cheapest
  • how to change personal style
  • what is the dimension of cuff, hem, collar etc.
  • what bike to get
  • & the list goes on
The interesting connector is they tend to come from anonymous & leave it very brief, no context or introduction.
Self initiative goes a long was, but not as long as making your own mistakes & then learning from it.
There is so much information out there, one just has to decipher the fluff..
Anyway it is the way of the internet generation now, good or bad.
