What To Wear To A Job Interview

Job interviews are something we all have to go through at some point. Sitting at home playing Xbox and binging on Netflix isn’t going to get you that dream job you wish for every night before you go to bed, or any job for that matter. Get some confidence about yourself, work up a little motivation and go out and chase that job you want with some drive. Do some research on companies you would like to work for (or intern for) and start curating your resume with key words and skills that target those job descriptions. But don’t dress your resume up and forget to dress yourself up. This list contains some of the essentials you’ll need to not only look good once you land that interview, but to stand out and be remembered. Believe it or not, a great pair of shoes paired with a smile, a handshake and a confident posture can land you the job.
