Nooners are not necessary lazy, we are just idealist and feel work should be something to love. Work is “work” until your miserable in your cubicle everyday for eight hours. Soon enough, you hate your life because your boss is a bitch and is jealous that you dress better than her. That is not your fault and neither is that printer problem. Like seriously people, you didn’t graduate college with a tech diploma, okay? You really don’t know. Between you and me, I threw out my printer in May because it was jammed. Yes, yes we all know that no job is ideal but let’s cheers to finding one very close to the dream we envisioned in our head. With that, the interview outfit is just as important as printing out resumes and researching the company.
The key to not being fashion bitched slap on an interview is mixing your own personal style along with the style of the company. Always add a sense of you but be respectful of where you’re going.
REMEMBER to always look neat and put together no matter how edgy the brand. When interviewing for a magazine, it is helpful to consider the looks of the editors who work there rather than the magazine it self. The magazine is great for inspiration but how the editors dress is a better reflection on what the magazine looks for. It came to my attention that some featured pictorials are for flash and fashion only and not for sporting in their hallways. ALWAYS know what the brands over all look is because their over all goal is to hire someone who reflects that image, even if it’s an internship position.
Final note: Brands and companies in the fashion industry hold themselves up to the highest level, even if it’s a dying brand. Respect the brand and let them know you know your shit. Be a fashion bitch back.
Now you have the fashion down, in a perfect world that would be enough.
