    Interview Attire

    I've always wondered about this. What kind of attire should you wear for an interview?

    The fail safe approach is full professionalism with a full suit, tie and shoes. But at the same time, that can be really awkward if that's not their usual attire, or interview attire.

    For "professional" jobs or jobs where the normal attire is business, then it's perfectly fine. For jobs with business casual attire, I think it's also fine to dress business for the interview. But I'm just wondering if you can dress business casual, like a full suit without the tie or dress shirt/pant with the tie.

    For my case, I'm applying for a customer service role at a home health place. The main duties are answering calls, creating client profiles and miscellaneous work. I highly doubt that the normal attire is business. Business casual might be possible. But nurses and doctors have their own uniform. So, I'm not really sure what to wear.

    I would consider going with a shirt & tie (no jacket) before I went with a suit & no tie.
    I think it's safer.
    Ties are frequently a part of the dress code, whereas jackets frequently are not.
    I think if you wanted to step down, then that would be a better bet.

    Dress code

    Every recruiter we have ever spoken to, and that would be in the hundreds, say that you must dress with the utmost professionalism every time. Certainly any office role must be suit and tie or equivalent for ladies.

    There is really no debate about this. Dress to impress every time. It is one of the first things the recruiter will notice. Make sure that you first impression is an ideal one.

    But for blue collar workers, say a mechanic or plumber, then just smart, casual clothes with clean shoes will still be worth doing. Might be just the thing that gives you the edge of the next guy who turns up in shorts and T-shirt.
