Admission Interview TipsFirst impressions are very important. Keep in mind that judgments are made in the first 30 seconds of an introduction. Typically, people notice your clothing, face, hands and shoes immediately. If you take care of your appearance, the interviewer will assume that you will take care in your job. Business attire consists of a two-piece suit in a conservative color (black, gray, navy) with a dress skirt/blouse and matching-color or dark shoes/pumps with low or medium heels. Men should wear conservative ties. Business casual attire varies from one organization to another. It may mean a coordinated jacket and slacks/skirt and shirt/blouse, or khakis/slacks and a shirt/blouse. Tie is required for men.
