The Undercover Recruiter recently posted advice for job seekers that claims 55% of the impression an applicant will make in a job interview is based on their “dress, act, and walk.” This reinforces the idea that personal appearance is an essential aspect of professionalization — albeit not one usually addressed in college courses like CEE300 – Engineering Business Practices.
Here’s some other highlights:
- 33% of bosses know within the first 90 seconds of an interview whether they will hire someone
- 65% of bosses indicate that clothes could be a deciding factor between two almost-identical candidates (see: What To Wear To An Interview).
- 67% of bosses say that failure to make eye contact is a common nonverbal mistake.
