14 Parting Tips Concentrate on your goal of getting the job. You are not trying to impress anyone with your distinctiveness or flair in how you dress. That can come later -- after you get the job. Its better to be over-dressed than under- dressed First impressions do matter, and often make or break your chance of getting the job
