When many college graduates begin their job search, they often wonder “what do I wear to the interview?” It might seem tricky if the company you’re going into is business casual. If the company dress is conservative or business casual, always dress up!
We realize that on a college budget, graduates might have a limited number of suit or dress pieces for an interview. We put together some different interview outfit looks on Ashley, by mixing and matching different accessories to key items in the outfit. This is the best method for any college student to create many interview outfits for less!
Some key items to mix around are:
- necklaces or scarves with a suit coat
- blazer or cardigan over a dress
- classic colored heels with any outfit
For Ashley’s makeup, we used lightweight mineral foundation and blush. For any interview, you want to look natural. To get this natural look, keep the eye shades neutral colored: light pinks, browns, beiges, etc. A brown pencil eyeliner was applied lightly on her top lid, along with brownish/black mascara. We gave Ashley a comfortable and refreshed look for her interview.
Don’t forget the biggest key accessories with your interview outfit…your resume, portfolio, and questions! Good luck!
