    2. Pre-test(True or False) • You should wear enough perfume/cologne that the interviewer acknowledges that it is you that smells good___________________ • You should not get your hair cut because you are not due______________ • Today it does not matter what you wear to an interview as long as you are comfortable_________________ • If you have a body piercing you should leave it in. It is better the interviewer know up front that you have one________________ • Make-up should be used to hi-light your eyes and lips________________ WBL Coordinator Kenneth Abel (631) 244-5900

    3. Attention to Details is Crucial • clean and polished conservative dress shoes • minimal or no cologne or perfume • minimal jewelry • no visible body piercing beyond conservative ear piercing for women • no gum, candy, or other objects in your mouth WBL Coordinator Kenneth Abel (631) 244-5900

    4. Personal Hygiene/Appearance • well-groomed hairstyle • your facial hair should be neatly trimmed • cleaned and trimmed fingernails • well-brushed teeth and fresh breath • no body odor • make-up should be minimal • pantyhose should be flawless (no runs) WBL Coordinator Kenneth Abel (631) 244-5900

    5. Dress for Success Women • the standard job interviewing attire for women is a conservative dark navy or gray skirted wool blend suit. • job experts and employers seem split on the notion of pants suits, so a skirted suit is usually a safer choice. WBL Coordinator Kenneth Abel (631) 244-5900

    6. Dress Attire • skirt length should be a little below the knee and never shorter than above the knee -- no night club attire here. • conservative colors -- such as beige or brown -- are also acceptable. Red is a power color. • blouses should be cotton or silk and should be white, or some other light color. • shoes should be low-heeled. WBL Coordinator Kenneth Abel (631) 244-5900
