A first impression sets the tone for the entire interview. Make sure you are dressed professionally and well-groomed. A good way to determine appropriate apparel is to look at what people in the organization typically wear, then dress a step above that for the interview. Generally, both men and women should plan to wear a fairly conservative outfit in a neutral color, such as black, gray, brown or navy. You may have more leeway in terms of casual attire in certain innovative organizations or industries, but it is always safe to stick with a basic suit for an interview. Avoid wild ties, trendy styles, loud colors, distracting jewelry and strong scents.
