How to Dress for a Job Interview - Women


How to Dress for a Job Interview - Women. Perfect grooming is your first assignment when you interview for a job, whether you want to be a CEO or an entry-level factory worker. To a prospective employer, how you dress says a great deal about you.

Things You'll Need

  • Hosiery
  • Silk Scarf
  • Skirts
  • Turtlenecks
  • Women's Blazers
  • Women's Closed-toed Shoes
  • Women's Dress Coats
  • Women's Dress Pants
  • Women's Dress Shirts
  • Women's Suits
  • Women's Sweater Vests
  • Call the receptionist or secretary at the prospective employer's office for tips on what employees there wear.

  • Consider the job's location. If it's a library in a strip mall, you can wear a sweater and slacks. At a corporate office, wear a conservative business suit. A pantsuit with a sweater or blouse is appropriate for an informal office.

  • Choose between closed-toe shoes, pumps and loafers. If you are wearing a skirt, nylons are a must.

  • Avoid miniskirts, tight sweaters, sloppy overalls and sandals with straps.

  • Check your outfit for holes, tears, stains, scuffs or wrinkles.

  • Tone down the use of makeup, hair spray, perfume and jewelry. One nose ring is one too many and may cost you the job of your dreams.

  • Inspect your hair, nails, hems and the shine on your shoes.

  • Wear a silk scarf and carry a nice briefcase or portfolio. Leave the oversized, disorganized handbag at home.

Tips & Warnings

  • You have one chance to make a first impression; it's better to dress too formally than to dress too casually.
  • Trendy is fine, as long as you keep your style subtle. Clothes make a strong statement about you. What do you want to say?
