Today’s Tip of the Day: Always overdress for an interview.
Having worked with a placement agency for some time I have seen people in and out of interviews where we would potentially be placing them with future jobs, and some people look as if they had just rolled out of bed. Regardless of what the agent tells you, I recommend wearing a shirt, tie, and a jacket. Throw on a suit and be safe. You don’t want to be up for a possible job with someone else and the one thing the agent remembers about you is that you wore your jeans with a pair of moccasins that day.
So remember, it’s hard to overdress as it is, but always do so for an interview.
