1) Why do you think businesses care so much about what you wear to an interview?
         I Think businesses care about what you wear to an interview because it reflects you, and how you'll work. It makes you look more promising to do work and accomplished tasks.


2) Do you think what you wear to an interview reflects you as an individual? Why or why not?
        I think what you wear to an interview does reflect yourself as an individual because it shows you care and shows or put an impression of your work.


3) Do you think what you wear to an interview reflects how well you might do on the job? Why or why not?
       I think what you wear to an interview does reflect how you might do a job because if your dress nice and appropriate then the interviewer will see you as someone who get the job done. Where as if you dress sloppy, the interviewer will see you as some one who will slack and not do whats needed.

BONUS Is it recommended that you dress up for a interview over the phone (when the employer can't see you)? Why or why not? 
         It is recommended that you dress up for a phone interview because its shown that when you dress up you feel better about your self, more confident.
