Superficial Interview Tips

Hey there!

So interviewing is kinda the worst thing ever. You get nervous, you feel like you can't be yourself, and it's just scary. Here are my suggestions to make you look and feel prepared.

1. Use antiperspirant.
I suggest using CertainDri every night for a few nights before your interview. Use it on your pits and hands. Even if you never sweat, being nervous at your interview is normal, so it's a good idea to be safe than well...clammy.

2. If you're a lady with large boobs, use powder under your boobs.
I recently purchased the Silky Underwear Dusting Powder by Lush. It was only $7.95 and it was such a great idea. It has a light jasmine scent that keeps me from needing to use a strong fragrance. Typically, at an interview you don't want to smell like anything, but this is light enough to make you smell delicioso. Also, if your boobs are out of control like mine, it will keep your boobs from getting moist and won't shift your bra around.

3. Do your nails the day before.
If you can, go to a salon and get your nails done professionally. If not, treat yourself and do your nails. If they're short like mine, keep the color very neutral and light so they look longer. If your nails are long, make sure you clip them enough so when you shake hands, you're not stabbing your interviewer. Always use light colors, especially do not wear red. One go-to color I love is Deborah Lippman "Before He Cheats" because it is simple and not distracting.

4. Use plenty of moisturizer.
No flaky skin! Do this the night before and well before your interview just so you're not shiny in any way.

The more you relax for your interview, the more relaxed you'll be while you're there. You want to be yourself so that your interviewer and you will know if you feel like you fit into their culture.
