Here's what the career coaches say are the five biggest mistakes people make when dressing for an interview.
- They Can Smell You Before They See You. When it comes to perfume or cologne, less is best. You want to be remembered for your skills and personality not an overbearing stench.
- They Can't See Past Your Tie. Your multi-colored fish tie might be fun, but it doesn't send a professional message. Stick to conservative, solid colors or ties with limited designs. You can always wear the fish after you get hired.
- The Noisemaker Effect. Steer clear of pockets full of change or oversized jewelry. They'll cause an unwanted distraction in the room, and the interviewer won't be able to give you their full attention--
- The Five O'clock Shadow. While companies have different policies on facial hair for men, looking neatly groomed is important in any situation especially an interview. Nothing says "I just rolled out of bed," like a five o'clock shadow.
