In any doctor's office I've worked at, I've always worn professional dress to the interview, not scrubs. It's time to get out your business suit or a nice dress pair of slacks and blouse.
best luck with the job, too!
- Jul 16, '09 by Christen, ANPProfessional dress, please! A nice pair of pants with a nice shirt, something classy, and nothing tight or revealing.

- Jul 16, '09 by missmakenaAs a manger here is what I look for: pants or skirt (wear nylons), no low cut shirts, do not wear all the bracelets, chains you own and no big earrings. Make up and hair rule #1, this is a day job, not out on the strip in Vegas. Make sure your nails are clean, trimmed and without polish.
Arrive 15 min early for your interview, have a pen and resume (w/copies) in hand!
Smile! ask how many patients do they see each day, ask one question related to the Doctors practice, and if not given a copy of your job description; ask if you can see the job description.
If the interview is going well, ask who you would report to, who is their safety office for OSHA.
Most of all be flexible! Good Luck

The only exception might be a very nice pair of peep-toe dress heels and make sure your pedicure is fresh. Nothing ruins a professional image like a cheap or teeny-bopperish shoe.
- Jul 16, '09 by deemaltMany years ago I had an interview for a job as a park ranger. What to wear? It looked like the best way for me to fit in around the office was to wear dirty paints and workboots! One of the rangers was kind enough to give me this advice and it stays with me always - "dress for success". Sounds corny but you can't look too professional. I wore a pants suit and got the job.
