4 Fashion Tricks For Your Next Interview

Although your appearance is not the most important thing in a job interview, applying too much makeup or having the wrong accessories can hurt your chances of getting the job.


Interview Fashion Tricks

Here are four tips to consider before your next interview.

1. Wear Something You're Confident In

First of all, if you never wear a dress, costume, or skirt in your leisure time, you should not start wearing one for an interview. There are also fashionable business clothes from Lipsy London out there if that's more your style. During an interview, it's always better to stay true to yourself since you are very excited (and sometimes even insecure).

2. Find The Right Shoes

Feel as comfortable as possible - even if it's a challenge to find the right shoes for a job interview. They should neither make you nor your legs extremely long, as you want to convince with your skills and not your looks, right? (And twisting your ankle when stepping into the office might not be the most professional look, so just keep it on the down low.)

3. Dress Like Your Future Colleagues

If you don't know if a business suit and heeled shoes will be the right choice, sit down in a nearby café a couple of days before your interview and take a look at your (hopefully) future colleagues - what are they wearing? Is there any fashion trap you might step into with your choice so far?

4. Don't Wear Too Much Makeup

When it comes to makeup and accessories, you should use as much as necessary but as little as possible - everything distracting the interviewer from your personality and skills might end in some attempts to flirt, but surely not in a serious conversation or labor contract afterwards. Of course - nobody should ever take a wedding ring off and if you have skin problems because of pimples, you will surely feel better using some light concealer. But there is no need for smokey eyes and pink lip gloss, so just underline your natural beauty a bit without exaggerating the usage of your vanity case. So, good luck for the next interview - keep in mind to stay true to yourself and you will not have to blame yourself afterwards if it goes wrong, because then the company did a mistake!

When most people think of Nike, they think of shoes, retail stores, and, of course, athletes. That's all true, but there's more. Behind Nike's walls, you'll find the doers and thinkers who design, create, and innovate every day. There are also data scientists who discover and leverage athlete insights to create the future of sport.

You might be surprised to learn about the impact you can have in Data & Analytics at Nike versus at a major tech giant. Nike employees get to work on a wide array of challenges, so if you're obsessed with math, science, computers, and/or data, and you love sport, these stories may inspire you to work at Nike.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.
