When you land a manufacturing interview, you have a chance to impress the hiring manager and potentially embark upon a new and exciting career. You want to make the most of that chance by making a great impression during the interview process.

There are lots of things to do to help you impress the hiring manager, including preparing for common interview questions. However, one of the simplest, most basic and most important tasks involves simply picking out the right wardrobe. You want to look your best when you go to your interview, but what exactly does that mean?

When you get ready to go to a manufacturing interview and are making clothing choices you should:

  • Skip the suit. You don’t need to be overly fancy with a suit and tie for men or pants suit for women. Many people don’t own suits in this day and age, and even if you do, wearing one to a manufacturing interview is unnecessary and can make you look out of place.
  • Dress in a businesslike way: While you don’t need a suit, you should dress up more than you normally would in order to show the hiring manager you are respectful and taking the interview seriously. A nice pair of pants and a collared or button-down shirt can be the best choice for men, while women will do well with a blouse and slacks or a skirt, or with a simple dress.
  • Avoid excess: You don’t want to wear too much perfume or cologne, too much makeup or too much jewelry. You want to be tidy, neat and inoffensive in appearance.
