Barb Test what to wear

#5
I had some lads turn up in shirt and tie and some wearing works clothes. My advice is first impressions last, just turn up in smart but casual(polo top and jeans) up until your interview/confirmatory where you wear suit or shirt/tie/trousers. Appearance on all visits is noted by your recruiter so a bit of spit and polish on the shoes and tidy kit does get noticed. Just be confident and chatty, good luck :D

If in doubt, the smarter the better. I suggest a tuxedo, plus fours and a top hat. Never did me any harm.

Or get some black wellies, all round good footwear. Marvellous for yomping around the area. When you come back indoors all they need is a wipe with a wet flannel, hey presto perfect for RSM's parade.

Look smart - whilst it is not an interview you will be graded on apperance. They are looking for you putting an effort in so if you do not have suit it is not a problem but you shoudl be able to put together a shirt, tie, trousers and polished shoes.

As an ex recruiter we DONT grade people at that stage but remember the ones who are smartly dressed. Once you get to the recruiter interview stages in when to start wearing a suit and shoes. Minimum dress at that stage woul be Shirt, tie and shoes and you are then grades on your appearance.

My first interview was in my best Black, Metal laced Black Baggy Goth jeans, a shirt saying "I Download Porn" with a "smellyourmum.com" link on it and my Scene haircut. They seemed to love it :D

Saying that I'll be making an effort next interview.
