Tips for Everyone

  • Hair should be clean and neat.

 

  • Be sure your clothing is clean, pressed and in good repair – being well groomed is essential.

 

  • Good grooming indicates to the employer that you value yourself and your work.

 

  • Clothing should fit well and be comfortable. Natural fabrics such as wool and cotton wear well and look best.

 

  • Shoes should be polished. Make sure the heels aren’t worn and scuffed.

 

  • No missing buttons or lint.

 

  • Freshly bathed with deodorant.

 

  • Don’t forget to remove external tags and tacking stitches from new clothes.

 

  • Clean, manicured fingernails.

 

  • Keep your pockets free of tinkling coins, keys or bulges.

 

  • No gum, candy or cigarettes.

 

  • No visible tattoos or excessive body piercings. (One or two ear piercings is fine for a female).

 

  • Smile, make direct eye contact and have a firm handshake.

 

  • Remember to bring breath mints with you.
