What should I wear to interview?

How you look at interview plays a big part in making a good first impression, so choose your clobber carefully and make sure a few days in advance that your clothes are clean and intact.

For some jobs and job interviews a casual look is the norm, but if you’re in any doubt at all about what is appropriate attire, make a polite call to their HR team to ask for guidance. Failing that, err on the formal side – better to be a bit overdressed than to look as if you’re not taking the job seriously.
