Dress like a boss
Interviewing for a senior-level position means you’ll be under more scrutiny. First impressions are crucial, so you’ll want to make sure you pay close attention to how you dress. Your future supervisor is looking for someone who can lead, so dress like a leader. A manager will pay attention not only to your style of dress but also the colors you choose.
Research shows interviewers tend to favor darker colors, such as navy, black, and blue. These color choices demonstrate you’re serious about getting the job and you mean business. Steer clear of brightly colored suits.
