How to dress like a CEO (for an IT related business)
by Career Times
So you’re eyeing that CEO job and are getting really anxious over the upcoming interview session? Perhaps now it’s time you kept your nerves in check and focused on how you should exhibit a professional image during the interview.
Who will you be talking to?
You want to show your CEO qualities but, mind you, you’re being interviewed by a bona fide CEO so you’d better show some respect and it can be easily done: simply don’t wear black.
Use colours sparingly and make sure you don’t wear another company’s logo on your chest. A white one, with or without patterns, is always safe. While round-necks exude more sophistication, a V-neck shows confidence and playfulness but both will go well with a slim-cut blazer.
This is to earn respect, so
If you think there’s no such things as stereotypes in the IT business, you’re wrong. Put on a nice suit and you’ll find yourself next in line for that corporate sales job.
Wear it if you have one and are confident about it.
1. All black (Black shirts a definite no-no for men)
2. High heels (max. 1 inch for men and 2 for women)
3. Anything too tight or sleeveless
4. Big, plastic accessories
5. Hairpieces or hair extensions
