The interviewer will also be looking forward to a result oriented, target
Oriented, efficiency and economy minded person.
These are more things the interviewer would be looking for as a criteria in determining whether you are successful and the right candidate for the job
Or not. These things includes,
1.YOUR HAIR: For men, keep it as low as possible, it gives you that much
desired executive panache. For the women, just keep simple and neat.
Avoid bright coloured hair-dos, an interview is not a carnival.
2.DRESSING: For both men and women, wear suits unless told otherwise. Women should avoid wearing trousers suits, skirts suits are preferable. Interview colours are black, grey and navy blue. A situation where you do not have suits, do not borrow oversized or undersized suits; always
borrow normal size suits.

SHOES: Your shoes must match your attire. Black shoes are highly
recommendable. Avoid bright coloured ones like green/red/pink, etc are these not office colour.

supported. Female should avoid crossing their legs as this can be a let OFF any day. Also do not sit unless you are told to do so. Incase after few seconds you are not order to sit down, you can make an offer by saying “may I sit down?.
