"Dress To Impress" - How To Dress For Job Interview

A moment ago we gave advice on what job interview clothes to wear and provided a general appearance checklist.

Remember that you want your interviewers to notice you're dressed smartly, then to focus on how you answer their job interview questions. You don't want them to be distracted by how you look.

So if you suffer or think you suffer from "interview rash", here's some advice.

How To Dress For Job Interview -- Interview Rash

During job interviews some people suffer from a reddening rash which rises up across the top of the chest and up the neck. We've seen this perhaps 20-25 times.

Being conscious of this as it happens causes you to get redder and takes your mind away from the actual job interview. If an interviewer has not seen it before it might distract them too, if only for a while, and quite unwillingly!

If you know or think you suffer from interview rash, try to wear a higher collar or neck scarf so that the rash is less visible. If it's less visible, you can focus on answering the job interview questions well.

Alternatively, if you know you suffer, let the interviewer know early on.

One person did this in a job interview with Catherine, quite subtlety and with humour! She said something like this:

"Just before we start, you may notice that I develop a rash during the interview, but it's just nerves, nothing contagious".

We laughed and moved on and no-one took any notice when the rash developed.
