DRESSING TIPS FOR AN INTERVIEW

When you meet a potential employer, the first impression is based on what you’re wearing and how professional you look. One look at you can contribute significantly to your future with the company and while it is important to feel comfortable, ensure you do not go overboard.

1. Be conservative and specific.
There are times when you may not be absolutely sure about what to wear. Remember, it is always better to be dressed a little more professionally than the other way around. Choosing simple colours like blue, black and grey is a lot safer than going over the top. Never wear something you are uncomfortable in. If you haven’t worn something before, this is not the time to try it.
Try and wear something that is appropriate for the job position you’ve applied for. A suit does not make sense if you are applying for the post of a lifeguard.

2. Be clean and confident.
Your clothes may look great but do they look good on you?
Like we stated earlier, only wear something you’re absolutely comfortable and confident in. Under confidence shows itself clearly. You cannot be fidgety and uncomfortable in what you’re wearing.
Cleanliness is crucial too. Ensure you give special attention to your hair, nails, teeth, breath and body odour. A pair of unpolished shoes is a strict no. Keep that in mind.

3. Accessories.
Accessorize yourself carefully and ensure you don’t look flashy. A formal wrist watch and a pen are essential. Make sure your shoes and belt look clean and match your outfit. Keep the jewellery to a strict minimum and if you are wearing earrings, match them carefully. If you wear makeup, ensure it is applied carefully and does not seem over the top. Apply your cologne but use it in a way that is not overpowering.
Also, carry a briefcase that matches your attire and gives you easy access to required documents.

4. Check and stay updated.
Check your clothing carefully. A torn pocket or hanging threads can look terrible. Keep in mind that something you wore years ago might not be in fashion. Wear it and see how it looks. Check the fitting cautiously. It may be a good idea to ask a friend for an opinion.

5. Finally, keep your clothes ready a day before the interview. Ensure they’re clean and well ironed. Before stepping out, check your appearance and satisfy yourself. Walk in with a confidence and get the job you want.

Structured & Unstructured Interview

Structured Interview is the one which ensures that each interview is presented with exactly the same questions in the same order. This ensures that comparisons can be made with confidence after collecting the answers from different candidates whereas Unstructured Interview is the one in which the questions are not asked in any chronical order. The interview proceeds with the flow, no scripts are required.

Individual & Group Interview

Individual Interview is a general face-to-face interview. There is only one interviewee at the time. Group Interview happens with a small group of individuals, say 4-5, at the same time. This is economical in terms of time.

Formal & Informal Interview

Informal Interview is an oral interview which can be organized anywhere and the conversation happens in more of a friendly way. No specific rigid way is followed. The interview goes with the flow of conversation. Formal Interview, on the other hand, is held in a more formal atmosphere. The interviewer asks the pre-planned questions and therefore, this type of interview is called planned interview.

Screening Interview

This type of interview is generally conducted by big companies when there is a large applicant pool. It is typically the first phase of selection. Screening interviews ensure that the candidates meet minimum requirements. It includes questions that can clarify the information found on the candidate’s resume .It majorly focuses on confidence and grammatical errors. It is the least formal of the entire face-to-face interview. They are often conducted by an interviewer from the human resources department who is skilled at determining whether there is anything that might disqualify you from the position.

Telephonic Interview

Telephone interviews are often used to screen candidates in order to narrow the pool of applicants who will be invited for Personal interviews (P.I.). It is a good way to minimize travel expenses. If you are not given any warning and are not ready for an interview when called, politely request the call back at another convenient time. This will allow you to be better prepared.

Panel Interview

A panel interview is conducted by two or more interviewers. It is designed to reduce individual interviewer bias. One member of the panel may ask all of the questions and meanwhile others may observe you and your answer for the judgment.
