Life Events

Life events pose a unique challenge because each is a new or infrequent occurrence for which many people have little or no prior experience.

When finding a job, a little dose of commonsense advice can help

Here is our advice on these topics.

Dressing for Success
What you wear to the interview says something about you. Think of it like another form of resume. While there is no one "right way" to dress for an interview, if you show up wearing the wrong clothes, you may be written off as a candidate despite everything else you have to offer.

Do some research ahead of the interview. Depending on your field and the position you seek, there is usually an accepted "look" or "uniform" that most people are expected to wear. Clothes that are appropriate for Hollywood may not have you taken seriously on Wall Street, or vice versa. Aim to be neat, clean, and slightly better dressed than the norm for the position you are seeking, as this is a subtle sign of respect that the interviewer is likely to pick up on. If you overdress by too much, you may make the interviewer uncomfortable or (particularly for jobs involving manual labor) inadvertently signal that you really are not comfortable working up a sweat.
