What to Wear When Interviewing for a Communications Job

In the nearly 20 years we’ve been interviewing communications professionals, we’ve seen the good, the bad and the downright scary when it comesImage to interview attire.  

You only have moments to make a good first impression so here is our advice on what to wear to get off to a good start when interviewing for a communications position:

  1. A suit is always appropriate. It conveys the message you are a professional and will take the job seriously. Choose a conservative color-black, navy or grey-which won’t distract the interviewer from focusing on your conversation and skills.
  2. It is better to be overdressed than underdressed for an interview, no matter what the culture of the organization and its dress code.
  3. Clean and pressed counts. The right suit, shirt or blouse can make the wrong impression if it’s wrinkled or has food stains.
