If possible, you should wear a two-piece suits, naturally dark blue, grey, or black in color. Under the suit, wear a white or pastel colored shirt or blouse. With the suit, wear polished conservative shoes, typically in a dark color.

For women it generally is a jacket and matching skirt. You need to go light on the make up. If you are planning on using cologne, it should be a light fragrance. Often it is better not to wear cologne as you may interview in a small room and the smell could still be overpowering. Don’t forget the deodorant though.
