How To Dress

Dress for Success

It makes sense to dress your best for the interview, regardless of the dress code at the organization. If you're in doubt about how to dress for an interview, it is best to err on the side of conservatism. You only have one chance to make a positive first impression.

Wear business-like attire, avoiding flashy colors, bold prints, logos and keep jewelry to a minimum. Wear clothes in which you feel comfortable. If it’s too tight, too loose, too short or too revealing — don’t wear it!
