If you have ques­tion­able style, ask CC for help

Townsville Bulletin - - Savvy -

A: Well from my ex­pe­ri­ence in the em­ploy­ment in­dus­try and as an em­ployer, it re­ally de­pends on the ac­tual job one is ap­ply­ing for.

I think it’s not al­ways about look­ing the part, it’s about be­ing ready to start straight away!

So should you have all the re­quired pa­per­work ap­proved and ready to go.

Wear the ap­pro­pri­ate cloth­ing as if you were go­ing to start there and then on the spot!

If you do your home­work about the po­si­tion you are ap­ply­ing for you should then know what the stan­dard at­tire or uni­form re­quires.

Say, in hos­pi­tal­ity, most have black slacks and a white shirt or sup­ply a uni­formed top, so wear the same, with a top as close to their colour as pos­si­ble.

In busi­ness look at what peers in equiv­a­lent po­si­tions are wear­ing.

If at an on-site job, wear your steel-caps, and King Gees with an Esky of wa­ter.

If the job you are ap­ply­ing for re­quires a shirt and tie, then wear it.

If a tie is op­tional it would be best to wear one.
