Hi! I am Kara Alford with La Femme Wonderworks. I am a certified image consultant. I received my certification from The Association of Image Consultants International. I am also a makeup artist and I received a marketing degree from Nova. Today we are going be to talking about how to dress professionally for an interview from selecting this suit color and a perfect to what not to wear. Right now, we are going to talk about why this is important.
An interview is just like sales pitch basically you are selling yourself, your talents and your personality. No one wants to hire someone who looks like they just rolled out of bed. So you might be the most talented, intelligent person for the job, but if you show up looking like you just walked out of bed, disheveled, encamped or dirty, no one is going to hire you, even if you are the best person for the job. So that's why this is important.
So now we are going to talk about how to select the basic suit color. Here we have Angela in a fabulous navy blue pinch stripe suit. She looks capable and ready to go for an interview. For ladies, there are three things that you should remember for a suit. Try to select one that has an option of skirt and a matching pair of pants, because that gives you maximum versatility. Also you want to remember with knee lengths for skirts, to have them either an inch above the knee or right at the knee. So that way you don't risk being riskay. And the third thing is if you can afford it to buy a pair of pants that you can keep it their original length for boots to wear with boots, or one that you can kind of tailor for flats.
So then the next thing we are going to talk about is how to select a blouse color. For the first option, you want to have a crisp white shirt, buttoned down nothing fancy. Just something you can wear under the suit that doesn't have very wide lapels on the top that one is perfect, and it has buttoned sleeves instead of, you could do cufflinks as well, but that will be a great option. Then, you also would like to have another option if you have a second interview, so you can switch it up not necessarily with this suit, but another one, this stripe shirt is a great option. Then you also want to have another white one just as an alternative for any other time or maybe your first day. So you don't have to wear the same outfit two or three times in a row.
Next, we are going to talk about accessories. Angela has on great pearl earrings and a matching pearl necklace. She also wears hosiery which women should always be is a must. And she is also wearing less than three inch pumps, which is an appropriate length. And her hair and makeup is minimal. Also we have a briefcase here for women you want to have either a briefcase portfolio or a purse. Not a large size purse maybe a medium size, but one of the other not both because then you are risk carrying too much stuff. So that's about selecting a suit and a shirt color, and your accessories. Next we are going to talk about the five golden rules of grooming.
