Hi I need help! For my interview Monday I want to look amazing and super polished, both so that I make a good impression and also so that I feel confident! I met my potential employers today (visited an event they helped run to see what they’re all about) and they are super nice and it went really well. Yay! But, I still want to look perfect — I want this job SO badly so I am pulling out all the stops. To clarify it is a job as a Graduate Assistant (so, like a TA, except I won’t be teaching courses) working with outreach for the campus Sexual Assault Crisis Services.
My outfit is a black lace pencil skirt, a mint top with a black lace stripe, and a boyfriend (i.e. loose-ish) three-quarter-length sleeve black blazer. Oh and sheer pantyhose. I can post a pic of me in everything if that helps, too. (And there are links to all the separate pieces here already.)
My questions: Black flats or leopard flats? In other words: can I get away with leopard flats? How to do my hair?* Also…jewelry? I was thinking mint/gold earrings and otherwise just my watch and rings. For necklaces I have my daily necklace (a gold cross but maybe religious jewelry at an interview is ehh), a gold compass charm (very delicate, pretty), or my (HA) Phi Beta Kappa key (except I don’t want to appear to be bragging…thoughts?). And…makeup?! I am also not makeup-gifted so nothing complicated.
* I am NOT hair-gifted. So keep it simple. My hair is kind of too short for a bun. I was thinking: down and straightened, or pinned/tied back and with a cute black headband? The former seems cuter and more formal to me…I don’t want to be brushing my hair out of my eyes etc. Thoughts?
