Because hiring managers can’t always spend hours upon hours with every prospective employee, the first impression a job applicant makes is going to matter much more than it would in other settings—and choosing an outfit that has professionalism written all over it can go a long way.
Unfortunately for people who love dressing in sunny colors, a job interview is not the best place to break out your bright orange three-piece suit.
In a 2013 study, CareerBuilder surveyed 2099 hiring managers and human resources representatives. The study found that 25 percent of them think that not only is orange the worst color to wear to an interview, it’s also most likely to be associated with a lack of professionalism.
