Wear something strange to a job interview. Here’s why.
Wear something strange to a job interview. Here’s why.

We’ve always heard that for job interviews you should dress one step more FORMAL than the standard dress at the company.  Apparently we were wrong.

A new study out of Harvard University found that it’s better to dress a little werid.

People who dress a little bit offbeat for job interviews are more likely to get the job than people who dress very traditionally.

And people who dress a little strange for work also tend to be more successful than people who don’t.

Why?  In the modern work environment, you need to STAND OUT . . . and dressing just a little weirder than everyone else can do that.  It also shows you’re creative, you’re a nonconformist, and you’re confident.

The study didn’t say how far over-the-top was too far.  But we’re gonna assume if the job interviewer is wearing a suit and you show up in a grizzly bear costume, you probably won’t get the job.  So be offbeat in moderation.

Hit up the full story here.
