- Feb 6 by ekeevenAlso how should hair be done? Up or down gor long hair?
- Feb 6 by chrisrn24To me, it doesn't matter all that much. I wore khakis and a silky shirt and I got the job. Hair...doesn't matter. Just clean and neat.
- Feb 6 by GrnTeaThe classic advice is to dress for a job that's one level up from the one you're applying for. Assuming you are pursuing a staff nurse position, my advice is: Hair up, and under good control, not fetchingly wispy, either. Nice skirt and jacket, a suit if you have one but otherwise at least looking good together, no sandals, one pair of small earrings, no acrylics if it's a bedside/pt care job, neat bag in good condition with an extra two copies of your resume in envelopes in it, shoes clean and polished.
- Feb 6 by netglowI don't put my hair up, never have unless working.
I never wear a skirt to interview stuff. I wear a nice suit: black pants and black jacket or colored jacket (I have a slate blue one that goes well). A white shell cotton blouse short sleeve higher neckline - no plunge. Sometimes a matching scarf that is not tied but rather goes inside the collar and hangs - not flashy. I wear lower-heeled black pumps - always wear nylons (pants = knee-hi)! Smallest ball-type earrings and clear nail polish if any. Minimal makeup, but honey, if you look better with makeup wear it!!!!! just mild application and mild color - don't forget your concealer if anything.
- Feb 8 by somenurseI agree with those above. I tend to wear navy blue, it is usually more flattering color for me than black. Can't go wrong with navy blue, imo.
For some jobs, if it is summer, sometimes i wear khaki or tan colors.
ANYONE going through 'the change', or likely to sweat (like, it's 90degrees outside),-------- avoid SILK, which is very unforgiving fabric if you have even made one drop of sweat. I also avoid linen, as it wrinkles too much.
I wear my hair up or pulled back, as my curly hair is difficult to look 'neat' otherwise. I think my hair looks nice down, but neat? nope.
But some people do have hair that can look neat when down,
but, i am not one of them.Last edit by somenurse on Feb 8
