Getting ready for a job interview is no doubt stressful, and in addition to being prepared for even the oddest question, picking the right outfit to wear can also cause a huge case of the nerves. Well, it seems folks shouldn’t stress too hard, at least over what color outfit to wear. A new survey finds that black is basically your safest bet.
A survey by SmartRecruiters looked at 180 applicants who nabbed a job, and 1,800 who didn’t and finds that 70% of those who were hired wore mostly black outfits, with only 30% of those rejected opting for black.
And if you’re worried that you may not be as pretty as other applicants, you shouldn’t be. The survey finds that 80% of those who successfully landed jobs described themselves as either average looking or “slightly unattractive,” while 66% of those rejected considered themselves “attractive” or “very attractive.”
