When preparing for an interview for an administrative office position, one of the details you want to pay close attention to is your attire. What you wear may affect your chances of being hired, as well as your potential for advancement within the company.
It’s a good idea during your research about the company to try to find out what their dress code is and it’s fine to ask the person who schedules the interview about appropriate attire.
If it is strictly business attire, you need to dress in your most conservative suit, with accessories to match. This means navy or grey, for men and women.
