Polishing Your Image

Part of making that first impression good and lasting is how we physically present ourselves and how were are attired. Our clothes are often the first things interviewers observe about us, even before we say a word. Therefore, we have to make our clothes speak well for us. "Dress like you already have the job" is a good rule to follow when we are deciding on our interview outfits.
