If an interviewer rejects you based on a purse (and I think that one looks pretty normal), they arent fit to be an interviewer.

Related purse-question: how big of a purse do I need? I got a cute-looking burgundy satchel thing (to match my cordovan shoes), and it's like....smaller than paper sized (nothing obnoxious like a clutch, just a smaller bag). Do I need a huge bag? Do I need to take it back? Halp!

I think it's probably okay with a black or grey suit. It's really cute!

I bought a plain, professional looking black purse at Target specifically for interviews. Wasn't that much since I got it from target. It was big enough to easily put a folder in (most schools give you a folder of stuff).

^I second this. I brought a bag big enough to hold a portfolio writing pad and the folder they give you during interview

Also some things I packed just in case:

-Mini lint roller
-Pads and tampons
-Dental floss
-Mints
-Extra pen
-Portfolio
-Advil, Tylenol, Immodium (there was just no way I was going to deal with diarrhea for any reason on interview day...my bowels act weird when I'm nervous and oh man I was SO nervous because it was basically my future and I really couldn't reapply next year)

I was definitely over prepared but it all worked out haha! Good luck ladies :)

Something good to remember for selecting attire/accessories for interviews is that the majority of interviewers are likely 40-60+ yo men and some women who are mostly Caucasian (statistically) and conservative (not necessarily politically). So pick accordingly. First impressions will definitely be set by your attire, appearance, and accessories, but if you choose well such won't be THE significant factor in your being remembered, which is actually what you should want.

So is the pictured bag not conservative enough?
