How to Dress for a Job Interview - #PradoX3



Congratulations! You’ve landed a job interview! Now it’s time to meet your future employer and coworkers face-to-face. While there may be more to you than meets the eye, these people don’t know you and won’t care to get to know you, if you don’t make the right first impression and the Prado X3 can help you do that.  According to the latest research, first impressions are actually formed within seconds of meeting a person. With this in mind, you’ll need to prepare not only what you’ll say during the interview, but how you’ll look. After all, confidence speaks volumes and it’s easy to be confident when we look our best. Here’s how to dress for a job interview. Follow this advice, and the person interviewing you will likely keep you around longer the hear more of what you have to say.


It’s better to dress up than to dress down. You can get a pretty good sense of a workplace’s culture (and, therefore, dress code) with a little research. Become well-versed with the company’s website. Look them up on Glassdoor where current and past employees have left reviews about what it’s like to work there. This should give you a sense of what you’ll wear on a daily basis. For the interview, take it up a notch. For some places, that may be business casual and for others, that may mean a suit. The main objective is to come off as a professional, credible, force to be reckoned with!

Keep it clean. Everything about your appearance should be clean, from your hair, to your nails, to your clothes, to your shoes. How much is riding on this job and how far are you traveling from home for the interview? You may want to bring a backup outfit just in case you spill coffee on yourself. Go the extra mile by getting a manicure, even if you don’t normally. You’ll be shaking a lot of hands on your big day. And don’t even think about showing up with wet hair! Do you really want to come off as a person with time management skills?

Fit to be fierce. If your clothes are too tight or too baggy, you automatically look like you don’t pay attention to details. Try everything on beforehand and take a good, honest look in the mirror. What messages are you sending? There should be no gaping buttons, no dragging pant legs, no extra-long sleeves, and no excessive cleavage. Nothing about your clothes should distract the person you’re meeting from your overall look. This includes making sure seems and hems are mended and that you aren’t missing any buttons.

Accessorize wisely. While you want to show your personality and individual style, you have to make sure no single thing is a distraction, so keep it simple. Once you get the job, you can add a little more flare (as long as you remain professional). We all have a dress code we have to adhere to during our nine to five that’s more toned down than our usual look. Don’t feel like you’re hiding who you are or selling out.

Your perfume shouldn’t enter the room before you do! Nor should it linger when you leave! Scents in confined workplaces can be a real turn-off, and some people are physically allergic. Just remember that Estée Lauder herself said fragrance should be an intimate experience; a person should have to come in close to smell you.


The Prado X3 professional steam iron will have you looking your best. I mean no one likes wrinkles in their clothing do they? I know I don't. I have been using the Prado X3 for about 3 weeks and I have to say that I am really impressed. First of all this comes with pretty impressive packaging. This isn't your run of the mill iron at all. It heats up super quickly, in about a minute and while I have had a few irons who would drip water when I'm ironing, this hasn't done so. Their claim of anti-drip really is correct. Speaking of water, you can use tap water, no need for distilled but I still ended up using bottled water since we have very hard water here where I live. This has every feature that you can think of (vertical steam, steam burst, pivoting cord, stainless steel soleplate, anti-drop, anti-calcium, mist spray, continuous steam, 3-way safety auto shut off) and so much more.


Precision. Excellence. Simplicity. The Prado X3 isn't just a clothing iron, it is the most important tool that you have when creating a crisp, clean look. Simple in operation, professional in performance, and excellent in results. There is no comparison.


I love the 2 year warranty on the Prado X3, it is actually the most I've ever gotten on an iron, and with kids around, you need all the warranty you can have. This is a professional grade iron without the professional grade price.  The Prado X3 professional steam iron will have you ready for your job interview looking spick and span. It will eliminate even the most stubborn wrinkles. No need to use a professional service when you have the Prado X3 at hand. So pick one up today and ace that interview!

What do you think of the Prado X3?

  1. These are great tips. I have seen people roll up into an interview in jeans and a t-shirt, and I thought,"You're kidding, right?"

  2. My spouse is the one who wears suits and he loves to spend hours ironing his clothes! I am sharing this post with him!

  3. I have honestly hated every iron I've bought. This one looks amazing and just like what I need. Maybe its time to invest in a really good iron like the Prado X3.

  4. Agree that dressing up (rather than down) is the way to go! That iron looks like it does the job!

  5. I've never been very good with an iron, but this one would be good for me! My days of interviews are over, I hope, but Cassidy still needs to look good nearly every day! (except casual Friday)
    It's nice to know people still pay attention to how to make a good impression with clothing!

  6. OMG yes on the perfume shouldn't enter the room before you! Biggest pet peeve of mine, is the dousing of perfumes. My husband irons all his clothes, I should totally get this iron for him!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I was always told to dress a level or two above what you are applying for. I recently had an interview where I was dressed up and the ones interviewing me were in jeans and t shirts lol

    ReplyDelete
  8. The pinstriped suit is really dressing up. Lol. But your image and appearance is so important to sell yourself as the right candidate

    ReplyDelete
  9. So smart about keeping it clean - especially the manicure! Its interesting how people notice those little details in your overall presentation.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ironing is my least favorite thing to do, yet everything I own needs to be ironed. I have to look into this one!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Great tips! I have never really worked any place that I needed to dress up for when interviewing. I was a teachers aide for years, and jeans and a nice shirt worked for interviews. But these work for those that are more in line for a job for business attire.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I remember a business coach coming into my high school and said not to wear more than 3 accessories. Keep it clean and simple like you stated. This iron will help keep clothes sharp and professional looking, hopefully resulting in grabbing that dream job.

  13. I think these tips are perfect! It really is terrible when people bathe in perfume!! I also really could use that steaming iron. My clothes even come out wrinkly from the dryer!

    ReplyDelete
  14. These are great tips! I know so many people who wear way too much cologne or perfume.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ironing is a lost art! My mom is amazing at it. But having a polished look helps out so much in an interview!

    ReplyDelete
  16. These are great tips! That iron looks really nice! I am looking for a replacement iron.

    ReplyDelete
  17. As a person who has hired many people in my career, your advice is spot on. Dress to look the part and even a bit better. And, do your research!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't really wear much clothing that needs ironing, but the Prado X3 sounds like something that would come in handy from time to time. Thanks for the heads up!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am a person who hardly EVER irons their clothes, I just chuck them into the drier and the wrinkles come right out but this would come in handy if I have a over wrinkly top, thanks :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. You posted some very good pointers here.
    I also really like that iron. I am not usually one for ironing, but this one looks so cool, it could be a game changer!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I remember the days of trying to figure out how to dress for a job interview. Usually I would ask the person calling to set interview what they required for workers to wear, usually it was business casual. One area that you shared here is accessories - that's the one area I usually neglected when being interviewed.

  22. My friend is going for a job interview so I must show her this post. xx

    ReplyDelete
  23. These are great tips for dressing for success! Would you believe I don't know how to iron clothes? Pretty sad, right? That iron looks like it would make it a lot easier for me to learn!

    ReplyDelete
  24. These are all really good tips! I agree that paying attention to the details matters. The iron looks great too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. great advice! dressing your best for an interview is so important.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ok is it bad if I even like the look of this iron! It looks professional and slick. It could make ironing look easy and fashionable.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Such great tips! I haven't been to a job interview in a long time, but if/when I need to its great to have these reminders! - Jeanine

  28. My husband is in the military so we don't have to worry about job interviews (yet) but these are great tips for after he retires. It's been a while since I've seen him in a suit.

    ReplyDelete
  29. The school that I go to really stresses dressing well for interviews. Thanks for reinforcing what they have been telling me!

    ReplyDelete
  30. That is one nice iron! I was actually just looking for an iron because I don't have one. My husband just started a job recently that requires suits from time to time so one is required.

    ReplyDelete
  31. These are smart tips. The one about accessories is one I guess I never considered, but that does make good sense. And yes to the perfume tip! I hate when the perfume enters the room before the person, or cologne for that matter.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I attended Catholic exclusive girls schools from nursery to high school, and the nuns were very strict with social graces and good grooming. I remember their words about wearing perfume - if people can smell your perfume from two feet away, then you are wearing too much of it. They also taught us that our clothes should always be ironed and neat. I guess that is why I always looked for a good iron. I think this Prado X3 would make my teacher-nuns happy!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I try to do everything I can not to be able to iron. Being left handed, most irons have the cord on the wrong side of the iron and it makes it such a challenge for me. I love that this iron has the cord on the top.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This iron looks fabulous. There's a joke in my family because I somehow break irons every year. How can someone go through an iron a year? I have no idea but I always do. Maybe I just had the wrong iron!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Now that looks like one sweet iron!!! I always tell people to dress up for anything when it comes to trying to set a first impression! Better to be over dressed than under dressed!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Honestly, my husband is the ironer. LOL. This looks like a great iron though! And I'd much rather be overdressed for an interview versus under dressed.

    ReplyDelete
  37. That looks like a sleek-looking iron. Never heard of the Prado brand.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great interview tips. I haven't had to look for a corporate job in years because my blog is my job but these tips I were aware of when I was in the job searching market.
