  • always dress for success no matter the level you're applying for...and always dress a level up from the position you're applying for (i.e. fast food, nice slacks and blouse, low pumps or heels; office position (reception, secretary, admin assist - nice skirt, blouse, pumps or even a suit); executive position - suit.

  • It does depend on the job. Dress the way you would for the job, but step it up a bit. For most places, a suit is best.

  • depends on the job! I usually wear nice blank pants with a blouse and heels, maybe a silver necklace and my hair neatly up. you dont have to dress like you're going to a wedding but you dont want to wear ripped jeans. Same goes for simply asking for an application!

  • I always wonder do you have to dress up to get an application

  • You don't have to dress up as nice to get an application, but definitely be presentable. You never know if they'll want to do the interview right then, or if the person handing you the form will be giving the interview.

  • I have always heard that a woman should always wear a skirt for a job interview. Slacks are to casual.

  • You should always wear a suit no matter the job position. You are expected to dress business formal to interviews. Remember, first impressions count.
