Seriously: What to Wear in an Interview
The post on whether or not to wear a ring in interviews (here) got me thinking about all the other nagging questions regarding what to wear (or not) in interviews.
Most people will tell you to go conservative. But what does "conservative" really mean? What about women with long or curly hair--up or down? Are some colors always a no-go, or do those red shoes show your independent mind? (I say this because I once passed a exam/interview wearing my favorite red shoes, and when a friend learned this, she was in SHOCK that I wore them.) The tension seems to be between what some might characterize as your individuality or even essense (especially in the case of hair), and playing it safe.
So: any hard and fast rules out there that you have and think others should know?
I'll start. NO OPEN-TOED SHOES.
