How to Dress for Your Internship or Job Interview

This is a 3-part series on How to Dress for Your Internship or Job Interview


So… what should I wear?

Have you ever head “Dress for the job you want?” I have.  But now it’s also “Dress for the company that you want to work for.” The suit might not be the universal standard.

Is your internship with a hoodie culture of the Silicon Valley start-up world or is it with a Wall Street investment firm? Many companies are relaxing their dress codes.  But a lot of industries, such as finance and law, expect you to be on your suit A-game when you come in for an interview.

Do your homework.
