A Personal Stylist Shares What to Wear for a Zoom Interview

Many people had their fair share of video or phone interviews but now it’s becoming more common than ever. Many people are still unemployed, and chances are if you’re looking for a job, you will be doing a Zoom interview. How should you prepare for an interview in this new climate? Bold TV’s Philip Michael spoke with Jordan Stolch and learned ways to make the best first impression from home.

Making the best first impression

Stolch is the founder of MiKADO, a personal styling firm. She helps clients pick out the perfect clothes for any occasion, especially job interviews. How can you make the best first impression? By displaying professionalism in different aspects. Here are some tips:

  1. Treat it like an in-person interview. Maintain the same level of professionalism you would if the interview was in person.
  2. Do a test. Test out your camera, microphone and internet connection beforehand. 
  3. Make your space look like a workspace. Your bed shouldn’t be noticeable in the background. By adjusting your background, your potential employers will see that you are a professional with a dedicated area to work from.

What not to wear

Stolch points out that a common mistake people make is dressing too casual. If you aren’t sure how to dress, Stolch suggests asking the hiring manager or doing some research. Looking at the company’s website will help determine the culture of the company. “If you think they’re wearing a suit and tie in that kind of office, you want to wear that on the Zoom interview, even if it feels weird.”
