Interviewing can be a stressful time for candidates, as the thought of being judged by your appearance, past experiences and answers to probing questions can be disconcerting.
Color can alleviate one of these challenges, as wearing the optional colors to an interview can not only create confidence and well being in you, but can also elicit positive responses from the person handling the interview.
When young and preparing for a speech, the C Color Founder felt anxious regarding the occasion and was given the following words of wisdom: During a speech, dress to the nines, as those in the audience will focus more on you than what you are imparting.
Dressing for success has been proven to be effective. The missing ingredient in this equation is color, as color is the key to success.
Why The Colors You Wear To An Interview Matter
The standard rule of thumb is that it is best to wear colors, such as navy, gray/charcoal, brown, black, etc., to an interview. However, adding a pop of your favorite color with a blouse, scarf or tie will enhance the attire, assist you in feeling more comfortable and aid you in “standing out” from the crowd, so to speak.
Consider one story a gentleman shared with the C Color Founder. During an interview, the owner of the company informed him that he stood out, was memorable and received the job offer because he was wearing a pink shirt.
Another gentleman shared that he always receives job offers when he wears a certain colored tie.
The stories are relevant because both of the gentlemen above wore their favorite colors to their respective interviews.
It is important to ensure that during the interview you are clothed from head to toe in the optimal colors for you. Since there are 16.7 million identified colors in the world, there are millions of blues, grays/charcoals, browns, blacks etc., and you can wear an unlimited amount of each of the colors listed.
When you dress in your optimal colors during interviews and elsewhere, you can look, think, feel, act, learn and heal your best.
The Role Of Makeup Colors While Interviewing
C Color has classified the myriad of colors in the world into four C Color Spectrums. These colors are categorized by the base of the color, that is one of the primary colors of blue, yellow, and red/green. When you choose and wear the colors from your C Color Spectrum, you are following an inherent trait, and as such, your complexion appears flawless and glows, enhancing your overall appearance.
When wearing the makeup colors consistent with your C Color Spectrum, you appear refined, glow and attract people to you; all perfect elements when interviewing.
The less than optimal makeup colors can make you appear washed out, hard, frightening and less than enthusiastic; all far from perfect elements when interviewing.
