Celebrity hairstylist Aalim Hakim and imageconsultant Suman Agarwal share some tips for men to create the best first impression and be interview ready:
Your first impression is always a lasting impression, hence, focus on formaldressing for success. So, either opt for pure business formals that exude professionalism or smart casuals known to be a combination of casual and business attire.
A job interview puts a candidate in a unique situation where the interviewer is constantly trying to understand his personality. Among many aspectsthat contribute to a person’s overall positive personality is his appearance. A heavily bearded face is a strict no-no. Pick up a Gillette Mach 3 in the morning before your interview and groom your beard. Ensure that all sides are properly shaved with minimal facial hair. Shave the side burns and do not leave it messy, the ideal size of the side burn is that it should not cross the mid-ear. Rest assured it will be a smooth shave early morning, avoiding any nicks and cuts. An aftershave by Gillette is a must and it is important to use it after using a Mach 3, your skin should feel and smell fresh all the time when you are out there for the interview. All this will work wonders and help create a professional personality.
Move over your daily college accessories because anything colourfuland flashy create unnecessary distractions. Wearing hand-bandsand unwanted accessory tends to send across unprofessional vibes.
Body hygiene is an important aspect which cannot be ignored.You will directly be shown the way out, if a bad body or mouth odour is all you are carrying. That does not mean apply too much of deodorant, some light scented deo/perfume which smells good should work well.
