What Colors to Wear (And Avoid) During Your Next Interview

What Colors to Wear (And Avoid) During Your Next Interview

Believe it or not, but the color of your interview attire can have an impact on how you are perceived during your interview.

Today we're going to talk about colors. What color suit or outfit you wear to your job interview? It's a really, really important question that is often overlooked. Color can dramatically affect the first five seconds on your interviewer so it's important to take some time to put some effort into it. For example, if you wear a red tie, you run the risk of being seen as overly assertive, dominant, and possibly a little bit arrogant. If you wear yellow or orange, you maybe seem off the wall, and you may not even be taken seriously. But for some professions though the rules can bend and switch depending on the the position you are interviewing for or the company culture. Red may be useful: for example, sales companies are often interested in overly confident candidates so if you're sporting a suit and you slip on on a red tie, that would be great for somebody who's interviewing for a sales position.
