Assessment centre - what to wear?

Recommended Posts

Ctr-lib

Hi 

I have my assessment centre coming up and wondered what's the best thing to wear? I normally attend interviews in a suit but since this is just exams and tests I'm not sure what to wear any thoughts?

 

thanks

Can't go wrong with a suit - Apart that is from when I was interviewing someone who was so nervous that the candidate sat there continually picking their fingernails and walked out of the interview room into the waiting area with a white shirt covered in blood all down the front.

God knows what those in the waiting area who had still to be interviewed thought happened behind the door when it closed!

Just don't worry, wear whatever you feel to be appropriate and be confident.

Most people I was with wore suits. The one who didn't had a fairly poor attitude to go with it though so I think it was more a reflection on that.

Good luck!! Without putting you off it was the most difficult part of the recruitment process for me so assuming you smash it it should be good news!

100% wear a suit. You want to look smart and it will reflect well on you! Good luck, again not to scare you but it is the scariest and hardest part!

A would agree a suit is best, it is a job interview / selection process after all and you want to create a good impression, or at least avoid creating a bad one. That said, a suit that is 'classic' is better than very sharp / fashionable and can raise an eyebrow....

 

Not being a stick in the mud but if the thing that people remember is the suit then that is not ideal.

Unfortunately my understanding of the AC is that most likely that is all they will remember. Everything you do is scored and you are there to tick boxes. If we were talking about the Final interview, I would agree but given the nature of the AC being faceless and just getting through is almost certainly fine.
