What should I wear to my job interview?
I have an interview tomorrow at 10 a.m. for a behind-the-scenes position in a very conservative internationally broadcast religious TV channel. I already work at this station in another area on a part-time contractual basis, so I've had a chance to observe the environment first-hand. This is definitely not a fashion-forward environment, and most of the staff dress fairly casually and modestly. Here are my choices: 1. Garfield and Marx sleeveless black dress with matching jacket, conservative and stylish. Will I look overdressed or severe? I don't have a scarf or jewelry to brighten it up. 2. A blue, white, and black scarf print dress with the black jacket from No. 1. Will I look unprofessional? 3. A really conservative black suit with a tiny yellow dot woven into the fabric. Not really "me" and really too warm for summer, but people like it. I'd appreciate your input. Thanks.

I think a dress is a little too much. Try a nice button-up blouse and a pair of slacks. Don't be afraid of a little color just don't go overboard. Also, a pencil skirt would be appropriate paired with a nice professional blouse. Stay conservative on jewlery and makeup. No open-toed shoes, either dress "sneaker... More

Nothing too dressy but don't over-do the formal. The staff may be dressed casually but remember they have been working there for a while and may not have been so casually dressed for their interview... More
