Dressing for the role you want can be an important step towards getting it. Not only does it make a great impression on potential employers, it also gives you a confidence boost. That will help you win the job in the first place, and to perform it in the best possible way. A good skill-set, a can-do attitude and classy work attire would make it difficult for an interviewer not to take you seriously.

The current pandemic has created challenging economic conditions. Many jobs are at risk, with many people furloughed or laid off, so why not improve your chances in a virtual interview by making the best impression you can?

The term “dress for success” doesn’t mean wearing the classic two-piece suit. As women, society allows us to dress in a variety of styles, giving us the chance to look professional yet chic.

In an interview situation, first impressions count, so it’s important that you look smart and stylish, but you also need to feel comfortable. So don’t aim to wear the tightest possible outfit, nor the loosest. Fit is very important and once you’ve struck the right balance, it’s much easier to focus on the interview.
