With the unemployment rate in the United States at an all time high, interviews can be very stressful for many job-seekers so it is imperative that you showcase your unique abilities and demonstrate you are an ideal candidate for the company. In order for you to project the best image during your interview, you must feel good in your clothing, have a positive outlook, and remember that when in doubt, boring is better. The general rules for proper attire to an interview vary by gender, job industry, and season.

Decent work – Key to sustainable development It is estimated that over 600 million new jobs need to be created by 2030, just to keep pace with the growth of the global working age population. That’s around 40 million per year. We also need to improve conditions for the some 780 million women and men who are working but not earning enough to lift themselves and their families out of USD 2 a-day poverty.
