1 HOW TO DRESS FOR SUCCESS 1

2 It takes 3 seconds (that’s right) 3 seconds, just a quick glance for someone to evaluate you when you meet for the first time. We form our opinions based on:  Appearance  Body language  Demeanor  Mannerism…………………  AND HOW WE ARE DRESSED 2

3 These are made in the first thirty (30) seconds of meeting someone: TrustworthinessEconomic Level Educational LevelSocial Position Economic HeritageSocial Heritage Educational HeritageSuccess Moral CharacterFuture Potential Level of Sophistication 3

4 93% of LASTING impressions come in the first four (4) minutes of a meeting. COMMUNICATION IS:  7% VERBAL  38% TONE OF VOICE  55% APPERANCE 4

5  Your smile is the first thing the interviewer sees.  Your clothes are a close second. From the second you meet your interviewer, your appearance and body language are sending cues about the kind of worker you will be.  First Impressions may be far from accurate but you will be fighting an uphill battle to prove otherwise. 5

6 Research ahead:  Check out the company web site for pictures of the employees, visit ahead and observe the workers in context. Make sure it is not “Casual Friday” when you go.  First impressions influence the way the interviewer perceives all subsequent information about you.  Many companies expect professional attire for interviews even though the dress code is casual. 6

7  Business formal requires a suit, plain blouse or shirt and tie, and shoes in a conservative color and style. Ladies that means plain flesh colored hose, also.  Business casual is a more relaxed, yet professional look, i.e. slacks, khakis, button down shirt, sweater.  Avoid: flashy patterns, short skirts, low cut tops and clingy or revealing outfits.  You want the interviewer to focus on your face and voice not be distracted your choice of attire. 7

8  No matter how high the temperature rises, the right business clothes still make a strong statement in the workplace.  This also goes for our casual, beach environment.  Just because you will be wearing shorts and golf/t-shirt on the job please do not go in for an application or an interview wearing shorts/board shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops, crocs, tank top, etc. 8
