And then...One of those places called you for an interview.
Why is it that something you were really hoping for causes so much panic?
You probably have less than a week until it happens. Now what?
You might be feeling anxious because you don't know what to expect. Since you can't predict what exactly will happen at the interview, being prepared for it can make you feel a little more confident.
Whatever you wear, be sure the clothes fit you well (be honest!). If they are too tight, they will not look professional and you will be even more uncomfortable than you already would have been. If they are outdated, it will definitely be noticed by your potential employer.
Be sure the clothes are clean and not wrinkled. Don't leave it to the last minute when you will not have time to iron something or sew on a button.
You may want to keep in mind the weather; you don't want to be too warm during an interview, causing you to perspire and get red in the face, which will make you look as anxious as you probably are, nor do you want to be shivering. It wouldn't hurt to have a tissue in your pocket just in case you need one.
Are you in need of an outfit? Ask a friend to loan you something, or check out a thrift store. Always be on the lookout for something on clearance racks, too. And remember, you can wear the same 'interview outfit' over and over; potential employers aren't going to know you wore the same thing to ten interviews.
