Attire for an Interview
- A two-piece suit will suffice in most instances.
- Solid colors and tighter-woven fabrics are safer than bold prints or patterns.
- Bright ties bring focus to the face, but a simple pattern is best for an interview
- Wear polished shoes with socks high enough so no skin is visible when you sit down and cross your legs.
- A suit with a knee-length skirt and tailored blouse is most appropriate.
- Although even the most conservative organizations allow more feminine looks these days, accessories should be kept simple.
- Basic pumps and modest jewelry and makeup help to present a professional look.
- Pants are more acceptable now but are not recommended for interviews unless you are positive that they would be appropriate.
