That’s the amount of time you have to make a visual impression at an interview, or when meeting someone for the first time…………..so it pays to get it right. If you get it wrong you could have an uphill struggle during the rest of the meeting.
Interviewers aren’t looking for model looks or designer labels, but they will notice if your clothes are creased, scruffy, torn, dirty or similar.
The effort put into ironing a shirt or doing make-up will be wasted if your tie is dirty, your shoes need heeling or polishing, your hem is hanging down or something has a rip in it. We are constantly amazed how many of these get over looked, make sure you don’t fall into that trap.
