Bring a resume if you want - I didn't, but some of the people I interviewed with did. This would be helpful if your interview is closed file (see interview thread to find out which schools interview this way). I wore a pantsuit, but any sort of suit would be appropriate. If you have one, by all means wear it. If you don't, don't feel like you have to go out and buy one - many types of business wear / nice clothes would be appropriate. Just stick to a more conservative look. My one piece of advice is to make sure your suit fits properly. If it's too long in the arms or the pant legs, by all means get it hemmed. Otherwise, you just look sloppy and unprepared. Good luck with your interviews!jesskiss312 said:hey. what do you usually wear to interviews and do I need a resume? I have a skirt suit and a nice blk skirt with a tan jacket. I don't know which outfit to wear.
I would disagree that you HAVE to wear a suit (women... I'm not a man so I'm not the person to ask about that!). Wear something professional, and something you are comfortable in. If that means a suit, then by all means... wear a suit. Yes, the majority of interviewees wear suits, but I opted for some very professional and cute pinstripe pants with a button-up white shirt with a coordinating sweater over it. I felt comfortable and confident, and better yet... I didn't look like every other Tom, Dick, and Jane interviewing!!!LoveOptometry said:definelty wear a suit, black preffered b/c its more professional. and also better if its a pants suit to look conservative and agian professional
