When it comes to looking for a job – whether that means taking your first job or working your way up to the next rung on the career ladder – it is important to create a good first impression. When attending interviews, you need to look your best, and one popular piece of advice is to dress as though you already got the job. Find out what the dress code for the company is and dress accordingly. Now, one thing most people forget when attending a job interview is that the fashion jewelry you wear is all part of the package!
Here are some tips to help you choose the right fashion jewelry to wear to your job interview.
Keep it Simple
You want the focus to be on you when attending a job interview, so when choosing your jewelry make sure you keep things simple. You want to stand out for your personality and the skills you can bring to the job – not for being the person with the bold statement jewelry! Keep fashion jewelry on the conservative side. Earrings should be small studs rather than long dangling designs. A simple pendant is appropriate for your necklace choice, and if you decide to wear a bracelet as well, then a basic tennis bracelet or bangle is the best option. Depending on the industry you are applying to work in, you may have a little more leeway regarding creativity. However, it is best to play safe until you have the job and can see the type of fashion jewelry that is deemed appropriate in the workplace.
Choose Quality Over Quantity
When choosing fashion jewelry to wear to a job interview, go for quality over quantity. Small gold, silver or diamond earrings are much more appropriate than large hoops, dangling earrings or quirky designs. When at a job interview there is going to be a lot of face to face contact and bold choices could be distracting. If you have multiple ear piercings, you will also want to make sure to wear just one pair for your interview.
If you are thinking about wearing rings, then you will need to choose carefully. Wedding bands or engagement rings are appropriate for your job interview, and you can also get away with a sorority ring or a simple solitaire. However, you will want to avoid anything too large or flashy and stackable rings are definitely out of the question.
The same rules apply to necklaces. Although one of the big trends in fashion jewelry at the moment is to layer necklaces, this is something to avoid at a job interview. Don’t forget – less is more. Choose a simple pendant or a classic string of pearls for a more professional look.
These are just a few useful tips to help you make the right decisions when it comes to choosing suitable fashion jewelry to wear at a job interview. Now go out there and dazzle them with your personality – not your jewelry!
