DISCLAIMER

WHAT TO WEAR?

When it comes to clothing, you should look like the rest of the interviewees; this is one place were looking apart will hurt you rather than help you. Dress conservatively. You need a clean and well-tailored suit (make sure it fits you well). The color should be dark. Get a nice plain white or light blue shirt. Wear a conservative tie. You probably have all these items; if you don't, do not spend a fortune buying them. You don't need expensive clothing; you need clean and conservative clothing!

Make sure your shoes are clean and your socks are dark and have no holes! Simply put, you should look like every one else at the interview. If you stand out with your red three-piece suit and diamond earrings, you may decrease your chances of getting in. Limit all jewelry to your watch and wedding ring. Keep you hair short. Stay away from bow ties or any other eccentric, unusual items.

Women should also wear conservative clothing; a skirted suit is appropriate. The same advice holds true for women; keep your clothing simple, neat and clean. Do not wear too much jewelry; use minimal makeup. The color of your clothing should be conservative.
