Polish Dress Code
Working abroad sounds like an adventure to many people. However, employment in Poland requires more than just the obvious Polish CV writing and translation. You will face issues that probably did not even cross your mind when you start planning to go for Polish jobs.
Do not misjudge the impact they can have on the outcome of your adventure! For example, you will experience the unusual immigration rules and practices, job application procedures, the selection trends and the management culture.
Polish Dress Code for Job Interviews
It is important to demonstrate at an interview good appearance as well as good manners.
Dress for the job you want, not for the job you have
Do your research. Find out what their employees wear and then dress as they are or nicer than that. Whenever you are in doubt, the best policy is to call ahead and inquire about the dress requirements.
The proper business dress for an interview is:
- for men - a conservative suit and tie in subdued colors (black, dark gray or brown) and,
- for women - a conservative suit or dress (preferred colors are black, dark gray or green, brown and beige).
Caps, bandannas, athletic shoes, sweats, unkempt clothes, jeans, singlets, open shoes and thongs are never acceptable. If the wind was blowing, comb your hair before making first contact at the reception. Do not carry a water bottle or coffee mug. Carry only a slim folder holding your job application documents and CVs. Do not chew anything.
In Poland, how you dress is the one of the most important parts of being hired
