Colors to wear--or avoid--for job interviews
They did a survey--employers most often recommend blue or secondarily, black.
Black is associated with serious leadership, blue with team playing.
Gray is a sign of logical or analytical thinking (according to this), white means organized, brown signals dependability, and green, orange, purple or yellow, creativity.
Don't go too casual or too formal--try to suss out the culture of the place.
Tailor your outfit--the shirt collar should not be hanging loose around a scrawny neck, with a suit two sizes too big or small.
Watch the wacky ties or giant beads.
Make sure your shoes are polished--yes, shoes ARE noticed. Wear a nice belt, not some old scuffed thing.
Clothes may not make the man or woman, but they sure make the first impression.
