Job Interview Attire: What Should I Wear?

Question Posted Wednesday August 10 2005, 1:37 pm

I'm 17, and I have my first job interview ever at ShopKo on Friday. The only problem is that I don't know what appropriate attire for an interview is. What am I supposed to wear?

I wore black dress pants, and a white button up shirt for my interview. It actually just depends on the place. I really dont know what shopko is, but white dress shirts and black slacks always look good together, and really nice.

It is best to dress to impress. I'm not sure what kind of place ShopKo is but I think it's a ShopRite kind of place. You don't need to wear a tie or suit jacket, if that's what it is, only a button down shirt and dress pants (or skirt if you are a girl). I hope I helped!

A good way to go about dressing for an interview is to not wear anything less dressy than the people who work there. I would reccomend wearing something nice, but not too dressy. Like, a button up shirt and nice pants. Anything that's excessiveley trendy, tight, loose, or sloppy is probably going to lose the job for you.

Wear a nice blouse. You should wear like, nice pants, not jeans or anything. Just, wear something sofistacated. Good Luck!

You can never go wrong by dressing conservatively for an interview, unless it's at a fast-food place or a farm. :D

Generally that means to dress as if you were going to church, or to a wedding. For men, that usually means a dress shirt, conservative tie, slacks, and dress shoes; a matching blazer or a suit is even better.

For women, dark skirts longer than knee-length and a relatively simple and conservative blouse. Alternatively dark pants are also usually fine.

It's a good idea to take a look at the people who work there, and dress at LEAST as conservatively as they do.

Good luck!
