Help!! I have a fellowship interview and not sure what to wear

Posted

Hello everyone, I have an interview for a fellowship program tomorrow and I am not sure about what should I wear. I have a black pencil skirt and a satin blouse and some pointy shoes but I am afraid to look too business like more than looking like a future nurse. Please any advise will be highly appreciated.

I've always believed that business or business casual was appropriate. Pretend that you're the interviewer; dress like someone you'd hire.

You can't go wrong with business attire.

So what exactly does a "future nurse" wear?

All white dress, white hose, white shoes, white nurses hat, modest hairstyle, navy blue cape, and a smile!

LOL when I said more like a future nurse I meant a little bit less formal. I apologize if I offended anyone. I am not trying to stereotype :o

If I was on the interview panel and someone showed up wearing that, I'd be so discombobulated that I'd give it to 'em just for intestinal fortitude....especially if it was a guy :D

Its a job interview, wear what is acceptable attire. Just a hint: I wore a suit when I interviewed for a fellowship.

I don't think you can be too bussiness-like for any interview, an interview *is* business. You want to be taken seriously.

Thank you to all that posted a reply. I when for the outfit I previously mentioned and I am glad I did since most of the people that was being interview were dressed very formal. Now I just have to wait to see if I made the cut.:confused:

So hello kitty scrubs wouldn't have cut it? Good to know...good to know :D
