Dress For Success

The first impression you make on a potential employer is the most important one.  As always, the first judgment a person makes is going to be based on how you look and what you are wearing. This is why it is important to dress professionally for a job interview.

Often times it is a subconscious decision for the interviewer that the candidate dressed in a suit and tie is going to make a much better impression than the candidate dressed in jeans and a t-shirt.

Below is a list of clothing to make the best impression in your interview.
