Dressing for an Interview Dressing for an Interview

Dress to impress...

  • Present a neat and organized appearance.

    TIP: Bring a portfolio to take notes and leave your well-worn briefcase or backpack at home.

  • First impressions count — For men, a business suit. For women, a business suit (either pants or skirt combination) or a nice dress. For either, consider wearing a dark suit with a long sleeved, light-colored shirt — colors that evoke confidence and authority.

    TIP: For a job interview, there is no such thing as casual business attire. You want to make an impression — so dress for it! After you are hired, the company will let you know the dress code.

  • Keep jewelry and accessories basic and simple.
  • Wear clean and polished shoes.
