When the right job and the right job seeker find each other, it’s always a great moment, and hopefully the beginning of an even greater future. For 25 years now, Cincinnati’s TRAK Group has been helping to coordinate just such matches. Whether you’re looking for a temp job or something permanent, the TRAK team knows how to make sure you get the position you're looking for. As one of the premier staffing agencies and temp services in the area, they're pros in the art of getting people hired.
As the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression; and even though first impressions are just the beginning, when it comes to your future in the workplace, they could mean a great deal. That’s why dressing for interview success is so important. But how do you know you’re not overdoing it, or being too casual about your attire?
The answer doesn’t lie in observing any given dress-template, but in assessing the kind of job you’re applying for, and also in respecting your own comfort level. If you have a favorite shirt that makes you feel confident, it doesn’t hurt to wear it, as long as the shirt is appropriate for the occasion. Confidence is the most important asset you’re bringing to the table, so you should be comfortable in your own skin (and clothes), first and foremost.
It's also important to consider the changing, and in some ways more relaxed nature of the workplace. Gone are the days where everyone wearing a suit and tie to work was a given—although that kind of garb is still appropriate in certain corporate environments, especially if you’re interviewing for an executive or managerial position.
But today’s tech and start-up companies tend to be more relaxed, so sometimes business-casual is 100% appropriate. By researching the company in question, you can usually get a pretty clear picture of what you ought to be wearing to a first meeting. According to the experts interviewed at Forbes, though, being overdressed for an interview is better than being underdressed—so don’t worry too much about overdoing it!
