There are no absolute rules; recruiters notice different details.

Read our article on the seven steps to master non-verbal language.
1. Adopt good hygiene
Pay special attention to the care of your nails and the cleanliness of your hair.
2. Do not wear perfume
Some people have allergies, you do not want to bother them when you arrive.
3. Learn about the company's dress code
The dress code of an advertising agency is certainly not the same as that of a financial company. The communications, web, animation and VFX industries are known for maintaining a corporate culture that values creativity. Employees who express their originality through their clothing style are often perceived as more creative by their peers. If you are looking for a job in one of these industries, do not hesitate to demonstrate your personal creativity, while maintaining a professional appearance.
4. If in doubt, wear a dark colored suit
Avoid getting dressed all in black. Even though the dress code of the company is very casual, do not wear jeans. You have not yet landed the job, the recruiter must feel that you are making efforts to present yourself well.
5. Get inspired by fashion trends
Bet on classic pieces that you can match with fashionable pieces. Fashionable clothes will give you a trendy and avant-garde look, a sought-after quality in certain fields.
6. Follow the general rules of style
Match the color of your belt to that of your shoes. Wear the right size clothes and socks of the same color as your pants (although patterned socks are very popular right now ... even by our prime minister!). Make sure your pants do not show your ankles when you cross your legs.
7. Wear sober colors
You do not want to distract the recruiter with too flamboyant colors.
8. Avoid extravagant accessories
Same comment here. The interviewer should be able to focus on what you say.
9. Do not wear clothes that increase perspiration
The stress of an interview can certainly cause sweat problems. If you are likely to end up with halos under your arms in an interview, plan the shot by wearing lightweight fabric clothing under your arms and a dark color.
10. Be aware of your non-verbal language
Keep your posture upright and slightly inclined forward. Make eye contact, smile, nod your head at the right time and pay attention to nervous twitches!
On that, good interview!
