What to wear to a job interview?

Recommended Posts

Always err on the side of conservative.A nice pants suit or skirt and suit jacket with appropriate stockings and you will be fine. Avoid pastels and stick with the muted tones.

I'm a paralegal and work in a court house often, you are fine with either a pant suit or a dress suit. The unwritten rule in a court house is to where a suit jacket, even women because it shows respect to the Judge. But since you are visiting an office within the courthouse I imagine that would be up to you. No open toe shoes. I would go with a brown or navy blue. Keep it conservative, no wild patterns that are distracting. Good Luck I'm sure you'll do great!

I agree with the other posts on here....Pant suit or skirt suit would be very appropriate.

My 2 cents: I would also steer away from wearing strong perfume....the worst would be if your interviewer was allergic or sensitive to what you were wearing.

Damn it! I couldn't find a suit. I went an hour to a bigger town. I tried every store and couldn't find that one that either was in my price range or fit right. Do you think nice slacks and a shirt or a shirt with a vest on top would work??

Do you have any blazers at all? I work in a courthouse and we can get away with mismatched separates eg. grey pants/black blazer. If you don't have any blazers, what about a sweater set?

Agree with LALA - try to find a jacket/blazer or sweater set. If there is a NY & Company by you, they usually have good stuff at not too bad prices. I also Strongly agree with KAMAY!! - No perfume - I get really bad migraines from perfume and I'll never forget the first person I interviewed in person walking in with a cloud of cologne surrounding him...I couldn't breathe through my nose the entire time! that was 12 years ago.

I agree with most on wearing something simple and professional (pant suits preferred). Clean, polished look is a must too - Another colour option could be navy blue? Good luck!! :)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
