Its true - You Are What You Wear! Especially when it comes to the job interview.

Believe it or not, you are examined from head to toe in all interviews. Not only is your experience and personality sized up...but also your appearance. The dress code for men and women differ substantially so this article is broken up into separate sections for each gender.

Before you go on that job interview, make sure you read these dressing tips! Many people take for granted the appearance aspect of the job hunting process. The better you are dressed, the more confident you will feel and exude.

There's no impression like the first impression. Initial decisions made about you in the first three minutes of the job interview are nearly irreversible. The purpose of your clothing is to project an image of professionalism. Your clothes should subtly add to your appearance. More importantly, clothing shouldn't detract from your business persona. Much as you may want to stand out, wearing the business "uniform" communicates instantly that you are a mature, stable professional and a member of the team. Even if the internal dress code is very casual, your interviewing attire should adhere to a conservative standard.

Yes, the dress code is more important in interviews. I travelled on the same day of the interview and faced many problems. First thing they see is your personality and dressing sense. First impression is best impression.
