Job hunters should do specific actions before each job interview. I reveal seven job hunting tips that you should do before every job interview to help you get job offers. So far we covered two tips:
1. MAIL LETTER to INTERVIEWER to CONFIRM YOUR INTERVIEW
2. PRINT 2 – 4 ITEMS of USEFUL INFORMATION about THE COMPANY
Tip #3. FIND OUT TYPICAL ATTIRE of COMPANY’S MANAGERS – &
DRESS LIKE THEM
Job hunting tip on how to dress: Every company has ‘unwritten’ dress code followed by its managers and executives. So, find out what that is – and dress like the managers and executives who, ultimately, may make job offers to you. Discover how formal or informal – or how businesslike or casual – those decision-makers dress. Then dress similarly – and they instantly will get the impression you may “fit in” their company’s culture.
How do you discover the ‘unwritten’ dress code? Two ways. First, you can sit in the company’s parking lot 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. – end of workday – and observe how the professional-looking people are dressed when they leave for the day. Second, on the company’s website, look at photos of managers and executives. How businesslike or casual is their attire? Copy that level of formality when you dress for your job interview.
Stayed tuned for the next tip.
