AJJKRN,

Are you serious?

I would think even the most "wet behind the ears" person would have enough sense to at least put on some khaki pants and a regular cotton top (not t-shirt) to show up to an interview if they had nothing else to wear. Holy cow.

As much as I'm amazed at your reply, I totally believe it. I do see a lot of disconnect in some of the youth of today and what is deemed acceptable (at least in the workplace).

Oh how I wish it weren't true...but yes it is (shivers)!

Next time ask. If it's the manager I usually ask "May I wear scrubs or business casual?" Most of the time managers want you to put on scrubs- color matters not- because if you get an in person manager/peer interview most likely you will shadow.

But always ask.

If it's an interview with HR,definitely seek out dress clothes like you are going to church. If I meet with HR I always use dress clothes and tie.

I've worn roughly the same thing to interviews for every job I've ever had: a sleeveless sheath dress (TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Ross have these style dresses go on sale all the time), a neutral-colored blazer or cardigan over it, minimal jewelry, nude hose if seasonally appropriate, and neutral-colored low heels. Each piece can be mixed/matched later with casual outfits...and if anyone invites me to a nice dinner :)

Basically, this look:

In the big bag, I keep a notebook and pen for taking down notes/ interviewers names for thank-you cards later, and a file with copies of my resume, references, and cover letter.

I wore that, even when applying to Dunkin' Donuts as a teen. I'm glad you got the job, congratulations!!! But, as others have pointed out, some hiring managers will expect a more 'polished' look. Not a bad idea to invest in some pieces that can up your interview game later!
