What Should I Wear to a Flight Attendant Interview? 3 Tips to Dress for Success

"You never get a second chance to make a first impression."

The first thing a recruiter will notice about you is the way you are dressed. And right or wrong, they are going to judge your clothes. If you have made it to a real one-on-one, face-to-face interview you own it to yourself to dress the part.

1) Wear a suit.
   Please wear a suit.  If you are a lady, a suit with a skirt is preferable to a suit with pants. If you are a man, you're suit won't be complete without a tie.  I know suits can be a little bit of an investment, but a good suit doesn't have to be a budget buster. If you need some personalized attention, visit Anne Taylor or Men's Wearhouse .

2) Wear good shoes.
   You don't have to wear a pair of Gucci loafers, but a pair of polished shoes in good condition will go a long way.  Make sure your shoes coordinate with your suit and you socks or panty hose. Even Walmart carries shoes that look nice and will complete your outfit.

3) Wear Make-Up.  Don't Wear Make-up.
   Ladies, please wear make-up.  Most airlines will require basic make-up as part of the uniform, so go ahead and glam it up.  Well, glam it up office style, not clubbing style.
   Gentlemen, don't.  Just don't.
