Dressing for Your Interview

What are you going to wear to your interview?

We’ve all got the short answer to this question memorized: dark blue suit, white shirt, black shoes, and a conservative tie for men. But, ug, how boring is that?! Wouldn’t it be better to express yourself, to wear what you would normally wear on a day to day basis? In a word: no. An interview, especially a first interview, is a special occasion. It is the evening wedding of the business world. It may be perfectly acceptable to wear jeans and a tee shirt when your friend Betty invites you over to her house for an afternoon barbeque; but if Betty invites you to her 5pm wedding, jeans and a tee shirt just aren’t going to cut it.
