Appearances matter more than a lot of us might like to admit and even the way you’re dressed can hurt your chances of landing a job that you really want, especially in Ghana. These are some of the common mistakes that job seekers make when it comes to their choice of clothing for interviews.

Not Dressing For The Company Culture

Although wearing a suit will always make you look impressive, it doesn’t always guarantee that you’re going to make the right impression. If you’re interviewing at a company that has a more casually dressed office culture, wearing a suit to the interview is going to show right away that you haven’t done enough research on the company. You can usually ask what’s appropriate to wear to the interview when the interview is being set up.

Wearing Orange And Other Bright Colours

Wearing bright colours to an interview is usually not a good idea because it makes you stand out and not necessarily in a good way. You don’t want your appearance to be ‘louder’ than what you’re actually saying in an interview. If you’re going to an interview, going in blue, grey or black clothes is usually a safer bet.

Wearing Oversized Clothes

Another thing that can make you stand out in a negative way during a job interview is wearing clothes that are the wrong fit. Wearing clothes that are either too big or too tight is going to make a poor impression on your interviewer.

Wearing Heavy Perfume Or Cologne

It’s always a plus when you smell good. Even at an interview. However, perfume is one of those things that is really easy to overdo and if you aren’t careful you might end up smelling like perfume instead of just smelling good. Before an interview, take it easy on the perfume and the cologne.

Wearing Headphones As An Accessory

We live in a country where adults are always complaining about the fact that the ‘children of the day’ are always on their phones or always have earphones in. Wearing headphones as an accessory to your interview is definitely a big no-no and isn’t going to make a good impression at all. In fact, you’re probably going to come off as insensitive.
