Here's Why You Should Wear Something Strange to a Job Interview


The old rule-of-thumb for job interviews is that you should dress one step more FORMAL than the standard dress at the company.  The new rule-of-thumb?  Wear a purple crushed velvet suit or leopard print high heels.
 
A new study out of Harvard University found that people who dress a little bit OFFBEAT for job interviews are more likely to get the job than people who dress very traditionally.
 
People who dress a little strange for work also tend to be more successful than people who don't.
 
Why?  In the modern work environment, you need to STAND OUT . . . and dressing just a little weirder than everyone else can do that.  It also shows you're creative, you're a nonconformist, and you're confident.
 
Now . . . the study didn't say HOW far over-the-top was too far.  But we assume if the job interviewer is wearing a suit and you show up in a grizzly bear costume, you probably won't get the job.  So be offbeat . . . in moderation.  (LiveScience)
