Daily Job Seeker Tip: Dress for success, even for a phone screen

January 21st, 2011 | Interviewing, Job Search | No Comments »

Obviously, it’s important to dress and appear professional when you’re in a face-to-face interview, but what about a phone interview?

When you’re feeling professional physically, chances are you’ll come across more professional, too. Why? Because when dressed in a fresh shirt and pants, it’s likely that you’ll automatically correct your posture. And when you sit up straighter, you get more air in your lungs, which affects the tone of your voice.

Plus, what you’re wearing also affects your attitude, which is equally likely to affect the tone of your voice. So, make sure you’re comfortable but presentable. You may not need to pull up those long socks or shine your shoes, but that shirt and tie will make its way into your interview performance.
