* After landing the interview, make sure you look your best
* Outfit must be professional and pulled together, but not too loud
* Outfit depends on the job – use these as a guide
Once you’ve landed a job interview, the next step is to make a good first impression. The clothing you wear is the first, and most important aspect of this crucial step in getting the job. Your outfit is slightly dependent on the job and the company, but as a starting point, we’ve put together classic, professional outfits that will make a great first impression.
For women, the ideal outfit is strong, doesn’t show much skin, but remains flattering and feminine. Dark slacks, a relatively simple top, a jacket, nice, subtle pumps, and minimal jewelry make a bulletproof interview outfit.

For men, a clean, modern-cut navy business suit is a must (not too tight but not too boxy either). We suggest pairing it with a crisp white shirt, classic brown lace-ups, and a subdued tie for a put together look that won’t detract from your insights and experience.
