Dear Experts, I have my first interview next week, ever. Before I purchase a new suit this weekend, I was wondering if anyone from CAREEREALISM had some quick tips for 'dressing for success?' Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:Q#485 I wear something just above what I expect to wear for the position. When in doubt, go all out. (@beneubanks) Q#485 Err on side of conservative for interview dress. Only 1 chance to make first impression. AGREE with @Gradversity. NO scents. (@DawnBugni) Q#485 Use common sense, it's not only how you look, but can you engage in the art of chit chat? http://tinyurl.com/26fju9v (@DeborahShane) Q#485 Hair cut, trimmed nails, best suit, big smile, clean teeth and scent free.
