How to Look Hirable
Perfect your job interview style with these tips from makeup, hair and career experts
If you've been hitting the proverbial pavement looking for a job because you've been laid-off, want to jumpstart your career, find a new career path or have decided to head back into the workforce after baby number two, you're not alone. And because of how "not alone" you are in your job search, just getting an interview is hard enough. For that reason, it's imperative that on the big day, you not only have the right chops for your desired profession (that's all on you btw), you also need to look like the best candidate for the job. That's where we come in.
We believe that beauty products (especially makeup) were put on this earth to help us all look fab. (It's amazing how the right makeup and hairstyle can give you immediate confidence.) Plus, there's no doubt that the way we look dictates how people perceive us. Remember the old saying, "you never get a second chance to make a first impression"? Well nothing could be truer of the interview process, which is why now is the time to up your game so that potential employers have no excuse not to hire you. One makeup shade too bright and it could be "thanks, but no thanks."
To find out what looks can help and hinder your chances of landing your dream job (or even that basic job to pay the bills), we went to the experts: Dr. Lois Frankel, author of "Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office," Jerami Brown from the Paul Labrecque Salon in New York City and celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. They explain how to do your hair, makeup and more for any interview. With their expert tips you won't be counted out because of your makeup or hairstyle choices.
