Decide what you’re going to wear for the interview, a night before. Iron your formals, polish your shoes, trim your nails and paint them nude, braid your hair. These are a few things to consider.

Now, it is very important to have fresh breath. Never take your mouth odour for granted. Having bad breath can cause an unpleasant distraction.

I’m sure you look yourself in the mirror before you step out. Do not wear too low necklines or short pencil skirt for the first time at interview. That’s because you don’t want people to look in the wrong places, do you? Joelle Thies from Wells Fargo says the interviewer may be distracted by the unprofessional attire and may be unable to give 100 percent to the interview. 

Mild Fragrance

When I say mild fragrance, I mean light and mild enough to keep you smelling fresh. Don’t drench yourself with perfume or deodorant since you just took a bath. Make sure your perfume isn’t getting in the way of your job landing purpose and interviewer. Remember, the roundtable panelists may be allergic or may have asthma, so wearing strong fragrance will cause severe discomfort. How do you know someone’s uncomfortable with your scent? They’ll move away from you a bit, open a window or wrinkle their nose. Cheryl Ferguson from The Recruiter’s Studio reveals a quick tip that the primary focus is your calibre and achievement so let them identify it. If possible, stay free of scent.
