I have an interview for an internship at an engineering firm coming up soon and I have no idea what to wear! Not sure if I should go with a dress, skirt and blouse, pants and a blouse, jacket on top, high heels, flats, jewelry, perfume...! Everyone says I should dress to impress, but I'm completely stumped as to what exactly that means in a formal interview setting. Should I stay away from bright colors and flashy jewelry? How long should the skirt/dress be if I end up wearing one, and must I wear tights? Not sure if this makes a difference, but the interviewer is a male in his 50's.
Look professional... The suit and dress pants look. Do your hair nice and you can accessorize but keep it fairly minimal. Some nice earrings and a watch, maybe a bracelet or two, and a nice pair of heels. Make sure you smell good and you're done! :)
Wear a conservative suit. Also, this depends on the company. You should call to ask about the dress code because I had interview with a company prefers business casual. However, I found the position on my own.
Is this internship an on campus interview? If so, you should ask the placement office. They will be a big assistance because they placement office wants to look good.
Everyone keeps saying suit, which is true, but you can also get away with nice slacks/skirt paired with a nice blouse and shoes/heels. I just did some interviewing skills for a class and either is acceptable. That little blazer thinger isn't 100% mandatory. Without one is a more modern look, but still makes you look the whole "dress to impress" ideal.
