What is the correct dress for a job interview? I am a 47 year old mother who is just getting back into the working world.

What is the correct dress for a job interview?Today the workplace is much more casual than 5 or 10 years ago. However it is best to dress conservatively for most job interviews. What you wear to a job interview depends on the job you are hoping to get. If you are interviewing for an executive position you can wear a suit, separates (skirt and top) with a jacket or tailored dress and a jacket. If you are going for a job in fashion something classic with one trendy item to show off your style is appropriate. High tech companies are usually more laid back but a pair of pants, a shirt blouse and a cardigan sweater can work. If you are not sure what to wear to a specific company’s interview, call the HR person and ask what their dress code is and check out their website for help. In addition pay attention to grooming with an up-to-date hairstyle, light makeup and not too much jewelry.
