Dress for Success
You are what you wear especially when it comes to an interview! First
impressions are made in as little as 30 seconds and you want to project the
image of an employee your prospective company will want to hire. There’s no
impression like the first impression - so make it count!
When you look good, you’re more confident. Those who carry themselves
with confidence and convey a likeable personality are more likely to appear
as an attractive candidate, regardless of their physical qualities.
How can you look your best and project that winning quality? Start with a
smile followed by a positive attitude! These are your most effective yet
most inexpensive components of a successful interview.

- AurStaff represents candidates in a wide variety of fields so our
recommendation on interview attire isn’t “one size fits all”. Therefore,
plan to dress a step or two above what you would wear to work should you
be hired by the particular company. Your interview attire may consist of
khakis and freshly pressed button down shirt or business attire,
depending on your position. Your recruiter is available to provide you
with guidance as to what is appropriate for your interview.
- Avoid loud or flashy styles or colors.
- Clothing should be clean and neatly pressed.
- Women: avoid heavy makeup or perfume.
Remember even if the internal dress code is very casual,
your interview attire should be professional and relatively conservative.
