Job Board Detox Tip #13: Check Your Wardrobe
Today’s job board detox tip: Check your wardrobe. Is it ready to for the interview? Do you have all the things you will need for the interview; notebook, directions, full tank of gas, and of course, professional clothing that is clean and pressed? The wardrobe of the job seeker is over-emphasized and other times it is non-existent. I will say this though when it comes to a job search, wardrobe is key. You must have at least one good suit for the men, or suit/professional outfit for the women, ready to go. Truthfully, two or three are even better, but start with one.
