“Don’t spend time beating on a wall hoping to transform it into a door.” – Coco Chanel
Rock what you want to rock, but keep in mind there our rules to the game, and a time and a place for everything. You wouldn’t rock a baseball uniform to a basketball game. You could have all of the credentials, all of the swag in the world, but if you don’t have the proper attire, you could be a fan watching the game instead of playing in it. There is a weeding out process when it comes to job interviews, and it starts with the clothes. If you don’t look the part, they’re going to assume that you can’t play the part. Everything else could be in perfect order (application, resume, interview skills, confidence), but that one thing could keep you from getting in the game.
? & Comment: Do you feel that the way you dress should matter? Do you think it does matter?
Dedication Step: Today I will take 15 minutes to search the internet for clothing that are acceptable for a job interview, and also shows my swag.
