H&M launches suit hire

People attending a job interview can hire a suit from H&M for 24 hours for free.

ONE/SECOND/SUIT is free H&M Man suit rental for 24 hours, so anyone attending a job interview can make a powerful first impression. Research reveals it only takes one second for potential employers to assess a candidate’s competence based on their appearance. But the ONE/SECOND/SUIT helps tackle this bias by making sure the potential inside isn’t overlooked because of what’s on the outside. By renting not buying, interviewing in the ONE/SECOND/SUIT is a conscious decision, too. “Job interviews can be a nerve-wracking experience. But we believe nothing should hold you back. Least of all what you wear,” says Sara Spa?nnar, head of marketing and communications H&M. “The ONE/SECOND/SUIT is ready-to-wear confidence. A signal to the world and a reminder to yourself that you’ve got what it takes.”
