What to Wear to an Interview: For Men

what to wear to an interviewNowadays when it comes to an interview people tend to think less about the content of what they are going to say, and more about how they are going to come across. How you appear to the interviewer always includes what you are wearing, but what is the best thing to wear to an interview?

Well, its no exact science, but people tend to go for formal attire, which almost always means a suit with a tie. Although there may be much more to it than that, this is essentially what most men wear to interviews. Why? Because if you think about it, what signals does a suit give off? Tidy, proffessional and smart, and these are the signals you want your potential employer to notice, and they will if you get the suit right.

In fact there has been much research on the effects of what men wear to an interview, the results are exactly what you would expect, but there is still more to it than that. Research shows that small things such as wearing a handkerchief in your top suit pocket could mean that the interviewer will be more drawn to your chest rather than you’re belly, and suprisingly, this could have an effect on the outcome of the interview. This just shows how you need to make sure when thinking about what to wear to an interview that you consider all fine details and make sure they are perfect, that way you will be sure to impress.
