Be Interview Ready with These Sharp Styles

No matter where you are, your outfit is way ahead of you when it comes to making the first impression. Before you have a chance to reach out your hand and say, "Hello my name is…", what you wear is already at work, sending non-verbal cues about your personality. It's the first thing an employer will notice during the first meeting and maybe the last thing they'll remember- besides your go-getter attitude, brainy skills and qualifications. But showing you're a professional, polished, and perfect candidate does not have to be an anxiety-inducing affair.

From the engineer, to the freelance writer, to the event planner, here are some classy and sharp-looking ways to style your next interview outfit, with notebooks to write down all of the questions you plan to ask to ensure the new workplace meets your professional and working needs.
