Professional Attire

Professional Attire

Dressing for an interview or employer event can be a make or break experience when it comes to your job or internship search.  It is critical to wear appropriate attire to demonstrate your image as a person who respects both the employer and the interview process.

Even if you know that employees at an organization where you are interviewing dress casually on the job, you should dress up for the interview unless told otherwise by the employer.  Take note that dressing up for an interview or employer/business event is not the same as dressing up for a social event.  Don’t dress for a party or date and leave the stacked heels at home.

When in doubt, dress conservatively.
