Graduation caps are put away, the partying is over and it’s time to get a job. And no, we aren’t talking about that summer job at the Country Club. No, it’s time to get a J-O-B. Which begs the question, how? Considering we don’t have time to go through the whole gauging what you want to do when you grow up and networking conversation, instead we are just going to say “be confident” and move on to discussions of what to wear to your interview. It feels more organic that way anyway.
So we charged our former intern Chelsea, who has done more than her fair share of interviewing recently, to help us with a few interview basics.
Telling someone what to wear to interview sort of depends heavily on the industry and position for which they are interviewing for. Some offices are just more conservative than others. And while the above tips would help you navigate just about any office, there are a few of the more professional variety (think business services), that will require you wear a suit. Don’t yell at us, we didn’t make the rules.
