How to dress for an interview

Even if a company has a relaxed dress code interviews still follow a relatively conservative model.

Unfortunately, many college grads are not prepared. You might not be able to "get by" with what you already have in your wardrobe. But you don't need to buy a whole new wardrobe. Quality is more important than quantity. One or two nice business suits will keep you going for a while. To add some variety within a limited budget consider varying your shirt/blouse or tie/accessories.

A few basics guidelines for proper interview dress:

  • Conservative business suit (solid dark color best)
  • Conservative shirt or blouse (white is best)
  • Clean, polished shoes
  • Well-groomed hair
  • Clean, trimmed fingernails
  • No gum, candy or cigarettes
  • Silk necktie with a conservative pattern
  • Dark shoes and socks

If in doubt err on the side of conservatism.
