First Impressions Count!
The experts say that it takes only four to six seconds for you to make that first impression. In today's job market making a good first impression at an interview is everything. More than 60% of all interview rejections are based on appearance and grooming (off the record HR professionals admit it is much higher).
That's why executive coaches, career counselors and others put so much stock in "dressing to impress." The truth is, an interview might just be your only opportunity to impress. If you don't take your appearance seriously, you can give the impression that you won't take your work seriously, either.
According to Barbara Glass, image and wardrobe consultant and fashion editor for Chicago's NBC 5 News, it's all in the details. "Why does everyone want to unwrap the present that's the most attractive during the holidays? Believe me, they'll pick that one first," Glass says. "It's how you wrap yourself." A candidate's appearance can make or break a decision to extend an offer.
