WRITING: What to Wear to a Job Interview

LEVEL: 270 - 300

What to Wear to a Job Interview


Deciding what to wear to a job interview is not really difficult. Before you think of what to wear, there is one thing you should remember: Choosing the right outfit depends on the kind of job you are applying for. For example, if it is an interview for a job as a cook, I think you should not wear a suit. You could wear pants, a shirt, and comfortable shoes. You had better not wear pointy shoes because the interviewer could ask you to make a dish in the kitchen. Wearing pointy shoes could make you feel tired. Most pointy shoes are very tight! On the other hand, if you are looking for a job as a teacher, you want to look professional and not too casual; so you ought to wear a suit and a tie. If you have to present a demo class and the weather gets warm, take off the jacket but do not take off the tie.  Do not wear skinny pants or dramatic makeup because some people who evaluate prospective teachers are conservative and do not like applicants who project an informal personality with their look. To sum up, you should think of the kind of job you are looking for before you decide what to wear to a job interview.
