Hi Elizabeth,

The attire really depends on the company that you're applying for. For example, if you're applying to a corporate role, do some research. You will most likely get brownie points for wearing a polished suit/dress with heels. However, showing up with that for an interview at a start up, will most likely give interviewers the impression that you're "stuffy". Before any interview, if you can, always ask HR what the culture is like. My most recent role, I was told that jeans were 100% okay for the interview (maybe not ripped jeans).

I think as long as your look is put together and clean, either works! I always wore a skirt and a tucked in blouse- but a dress serves just the same. Interviewers are going to be looking at how you carry yourself as well- so be sure to be confident, prepared, and to ask questions!

A proper clean and tidy attire is half the battle won ! Therefore, it is necessary that you pay attention towards what you are wearing, along side your job interview training and interview preparation part.

Here are some of the “do’s” and “dont’s” as far as your interview attire is concerned. Hope that these would help you to give an insight into the same.

  1. In the event that your interview attire is over an year old, then it is time that you go for another high-quality wear which is faultlessly cut, fits you impeccably and in which you look awesome. In case of administration or executive roles, then you have to look like it and the suit should be of the absolute best quality to mirror your status. Looking great additionally will enable you to feel good.
  2. Accessories are similarly vital. Handbags and briefcases ought to be savvy and the contents well placed. Pens ought to be of good quality. Business cards ought to be flawless ideally speaking in their own particular holder.

Depends on the company and the role. For young professionals, i would suggest a black suit, white blouse - clean cut professional clothing. Nothing flashy - you never know who is interviewing you and you do not want to offend or give the wrong impression. Do not under dress - this will portray you are not taking your the interview seriously.

I just read an article about this, give it a read! www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/what-not-to-wear-to-a-job-interview_us_5a5f6956e4b00a7f171c92e3?ncid=APPLENEWS00001

I think the best points it makes is to tailor your look to the job you're applying for and to what makes you comfortable/confident, and that no matter what you wear it should look polished/put-together.

Hi Elizabeth!

The industry dress code to be followed for interviews is wearing the 'Business Professional aka Full Business aka Formal Business' attire. What it means is:
1) Clothes should be solid, dark or neutral colors
2) Light colors can be worn underneath
3) No stripes or bright colors or bright prints
4) The color of your suit/jacket (whichever you are using) should be the same as that of your pants/skirt (whichever you are using). This means that a black suit/jacket with black pants/skirt works.
5) Shoes should be closed-toe heel or dress shoes

P.S.: This dress code can be followed for career fairs, professional networking and presentation events, business meetings, formal celebratory occasions as well.

Hope this helps!!!
