What you need to wear to nail that job interview

When it comes to the nerve-racking time of trying to gain employment in your desired industry there are a lot of things that are outside your control. What the company you are interviewing with is one of them, or merely whether they are looking for a specific candidate is another. However, there is one thing that you can control and that is your appearance. Jobs have been gained purely from making the right impression, and this is one thing that both men and women can control when undertaking interviews with prospective employers.

Dress like your successful

It is important that when you enter the office for your interview that you look the part. Women need to look glamorous yet not like they are attending a fashion show and dress for success men because the first appearance is one that truly matters.

Ladies, wear bright colors

I am not talking about walking into the interview looking like a peacock, I mean walking into the interview in a color that isn’t drab and moody. Certain colors represent different moods, for example, blue represents trustworthiness and the interviewer will subconsciously process this whilst participating with you in the introductory handshake.

Men, don’t look stock standard

Many men believe that their options on what to wear are rather limited and therefore the opportunity to display their personality is limited. This is not the case. There is a range of different cuts and colors when it comes to suits and shoes that accompany them and each cut, style, and accessory can say a lot about your personality. This does not mean rocking into the interview in designer sunglasses though. The interviewer needs to look you in the eyes, and sunglasses at an interview just comes across as cocky and smug.

Adopt this advice and you’ll be well on your way to landing that new job.

Hitting the town

How to ensure you have a great night on the town

Ladies, when you are engrossed in your busy life and that rare opportunity arises where you have time to head out you are going to make sure you make the most of that free night in your life. Below are the steps we believe you need to follow to ensure that your night on the town ends up a memorable one.

Plan ahead


Like most things in life, if you want the task to be successful, you are going to need to do your research. What are you feeling like doing? Does the restaurant you are planning to visit need bookings? Have you got everything you need for the night on the town? Have you got an appropriate ID?

Choose the right company

Once you know what you want to do you are going to need to make sure that you invite the right person for that chosen activity? Is it a chill drinking night, bring the more introverted friend that you just click with? Do you want to hit the dancefloor? Then don’t bring your friend with the two left feet.

Give yourself plenty of time to get ready


Don’t plan for a 6 pm catch up, if you finish work at 5 pm. Make sure to allow yourself plenty of time to get ready so you are not rushing around and stressed by the time you leave your house


Choose the right outfit


There is such a large variety of night out outfits for you to choose from that you are going to make sure that you pick the right one. It is probably not wise to wear something too uncomfortable and revealing for example if you’ve arranged to go ten pin bowling.

Wear appropriate shoes

Perhaps the easiest mistake to make is to wear a pair of shoes that is going to leave you feeling regret for the rest of the night. Absolutely avoid heels at all cost if you are going to be doing something active. Conversely rock those heels if you are looking to gain the attraction of the eligible bachelors in the new, hot bar in town.


Tell someone where you are going

Just to leave you feeling a little bit safer, divulge your plans to a close friend. If the plans for the night involve a date with someone you don’t know all that well, confiding your location to a close friend is just a good way to ensure that people will be aware of where you are if things go pear-shaped


Let your hair down

Or keep your hair up, it’s your decision if you take that tip literally. But what I mean is enjoy yourself! This is that one night out that you have been looking forward to for a while. So, make sure that you make it a night that you’ll never forget. Good company, good alcohol, and a positive frame of mind can make those rare nights out more memorable!
