Interview Outfit Ideas

Ciao ♥ Although my blog has a fairly small audience, there are still quite a few of you who are regular readers. For that matter I feel as if I should take it upon myself to help you guys out. Besides from doing that fashion and beauty wise (at least I hope I do), I think it’s important to discuss a range of topics and offer advice which can make somewhat of a difference and be beneficial to your everyday life. In today’s post I will be briefly touching upon job interviews and how to present yourself when in attendance of one.

Okay so we’ve all been there. Interviews can be pretty daunting stuff especially as there’s quite a few things to consider. Primarily, it is important you look professional and presentable. First impressions are everything and can be the deal breaker with any given job (or situation for that matter). Remember, you want to stand out and for all of the right reasons. “How do I do that?” some of you may ask. Well as cliché as it may sound this can be achieved by allowing your personality to shine through in both your behaviour and outfit. I always try to inject some of my personality into my outfit regardless of whether I’m expected to dress in a formal manner. You can do this by adding some colour to your outfit or incorporating different silhouettes, prints and textures to it. For instance, you could swap your frumpy, shapeless trousers for a pair of fitted cigarette ones or simply add a skinny black belt to your straight-cut dress.

Below is a selection of outfits that I’ve put together to have you feeling and looking as good as can be. After all… if you look good, you feel good. For those of you who are hoping to replicate these looks, all items featured are currently available to purchase on the high-street or online. Happy shopping!

Before I get ahead of myself and forget, how many of you have recently graduated and currently looking for a job? Or, how many of you are in need of a new challenge and thereby looking to transition to a new company? Hmm! Quite a few of you I see. I can imagine you’ve spent a fair bit of time looking through countless job sites hoping to find your ‘dream’ job. It’s a lot harder than you had anticipated right?... especially when you’ve already applied to all of the current positions on all of the job sites you’re familiar with. Ah! Well what if I told you there's a new job site in town. Yes, you heard right. Browse thousands of jobs online with City Calling. Ha! I bet I have your full attention now ey? Make sure you guys check them out as I know how difficult it can be to get your foot in the door within the working world. For each job advertised there’s hundreds of candidates, if not more, applying for that position. Competition is FIERCE but let’s not forget that once you’re in, you’re in.

I also feel it’s important of me to tell you guys not to be disheartened if the final outcome of your interview is not successful. Instead consider it to be a part of your working experience and a way to better prepare yourself for the next one. After all, interviews are a great way of strengthening your ability to conduct yourself in a professional manner and enables you to practice selling your expertise. Practice makes perfect and you’ll soon find that once you have been to a few interviews the rest will almost be a breeze. Good luck :)

Ciao ♥ Xx
