Choosing Your Style for the Civilian Job
When you start interviewing, research the company’s dress code. Is it business, business casual or casual dress? It may be all three, but when you interview, opt for over-dressed rather than under-dressed.
What does it really mean when a clothing tag says “wash and wear” or “dry clean”? First and foremost the clothing manufacturer wants you to be happy with your purchase and one way for them to accomplish this is to give you help in caring for the clothing.
Quality Clothing at Discount Prices
Shopping for a new private sector wardrobe can be a budget buster unless you take advantage of retailers which specialize in quality clothing at discount prices.
It’s one thing to know enough to wear a conservative navy or black suit with white shirt and simple tie to the interview, but what if you get hired? Hopefully, endless days of color coordinated clothing follow.
When you go to purchase clothing for an interview or to build a wardrobe you will find many stores in various price ranges. Depending on your budget and needs, there are many options. The challenge is finding just the right store for you.
As the old cliché goes, “you only have one chance to make a first impression.” With that in mind, personal grooming is critical in nailing down that civilian job interview, and ultimately, upward mobility in the workplace. Let’s take a look at some of the grooming habits you need to handle to make a favorable firtst impression on your new employer.
