So, you have finally scored an interview for that position, internship, or job for which you applied. Congrats! Now onto the next step: what do you wear to the interview? 

How you are dressed for an interview speaks volumes on how you will manage your job or position. Looking the part is just as important as what you say in the interview. Dressing for the interview can sometimes make it or break it.

This is a time where a neutral color palette and an overall simple look is key. After all, YOU want to shine and be the center of attention in your interview, not your outfit. Here are some helpful tips on how to dress to impress and have success!

  1. Opt for a skirt that is knee length or just above the knee. A classical pencil shape in a neutral color is the best way to go. Black is the easiest and can be worn with anything. And while it is important to have a neutral color palette, adding one colorful piece, such as an accessory, is totally fine.
  2. Another stylish staple piece is a tailored blazer. The great thing about investing in a good blazer is the fact that it is versatile. Pair it with a pencil skirt for a professional interview, or throw it on with some black skinnys and a sparkly top underneath for a night out on the weekend. A cute blazer is a great investment. 
  3. It is probably best to skip the sparkly stilleto. Classic, conservative pumps are the way to go. When it comes to shoes, opt for a pair that are not too tall. This is a classy look that will always impress.
  4. Keep jewelry to a minimum and remember that less is more. A diamond stud adds a shimmery touch without being over the top. Also, be sure to have your nails a color that isn’t distracting.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
