[Blogodise Grooming Focus] – What does your shirt say about you?

Written by Erz on Monday, October 08, 2007

Picture this: You go for this very important interview feeling ultra confident. You’ve waited for this opportunity for a very long time and are exhilarated when your dream company finally calls you up for an interview. You go in well-prepared, having done more than the required share of research and having consulted all your friends on the tips you need to get the job. However, your interview turns out to be a disaster. When you step into the interview room, you are met by strange condescending stares and a cold attitude by the interviewers. They do not seem very interested in what you say and very soon, you find yourself being ushered out of the room.

Despite all your efforts in preparing for the interview, what might have tripped you up? You are totally baffled. Then it dawns on you. Your shirt! The relic from your dad’s closet was purchased for a couple of pounds from your neighbor’s garage sale. Not that you thought much about that. But you were never a fashion guru, were you? The hard truth – your shirt represents you! I found this out through personal experience – the hard way. Your shirt shows the attitude you take and more subtly, how much the job or company you are interviewing for means to you. A good quality, stylish and smart formal shirt projects a good image of yourself and the company that you represent. The opposite is true as well. If you look good, so does your company! It is no wonder that many interviewers include the image projected as a criterion in selecting a candidate.

And good quality and style does not equate to high price. Established shirt companies such as Van Heusen offer a wide array of formal shirts, casual shirts, ties, cufflinks etc for competitive prices. You are simply spoilt for choice. So before you jump into that important interview, make sure you take a peek in the mirror first so that you don’t let that shirt of yours reduce the chances of winning that dream job!
