According to our friends at Interview Skills 101, 65% of bosses say clothes could be the deciding factor between two similar candiates. Ladies and gentleman, I didn't make a typo. If a hiring manager's decision comes down to you and another candidate who brings the same skills to the table, there's a good chance that your interview outfit will make or break the deal.
Your appearance matters. Employers want people who will represent their company well to customers, clients, the public, etc. So if you don't give a second thought to what you look like before an interview, it's time to change your ways. Plan your interview outfit the day before the interview, not one hour before. Ask a friend or relative for their opinion just to make sure you're on the right track.
