    Wear clothing that indicates you are ready to go to work today.

    Men and Women

    All clothes should be neatly pressed.
    Conservative two-piece business suite (solid dark blue or gray is best)
    Conservative long-sleeved shirt/blouse (white is best, pastel is next best)
    Clean, polished, conservative shoes
    Clean and well-groomed hairstyle
    Clean, trimmed fingernails
    Minimal cologne or perfume
    Empty pockets – no noisy coins
    No gum, candy or cigarettes


    Necktie should be silk with a conservative pattern
    Dark shoes (black lace-ups are best); clean and polished
    Dark socks (black is best)
    Short hair always fairs best in interviews
    No beards – mustaches are acceptable (keep neat and trimmed)
    No earrings
    No heavy cologne


    Always wear a suit with a jacket; or a sheath dress with a jacket
    Do not wear extremely high-heeled or platform shoes
    Do not wear open-toe shoes or mules (they are more casual)
    Conservative hosiery at or near skin color (and no runs!)
    If you wear nail polish (not required), use clear or a conservative color
    One set of earrings only
    Conservative makeup
    No heavy perfume
    No heavy cologne
