I have nothing to wear!!!

Posted By Lily McCall, GAIN intern, Wednesday, November 17, 2010
So you got an informational interview?! YESSS

What’s that? You have nothing to wear, can you wear jeans? Um no.

But you used to work with this person and they’ve seen you in jeans before? Still no.

An informational interview isn’t a full on interview you’re right, but you NEVER know when you might be meeting with someone and they mention they are about to hire, and you should come back to their office with them and meet their Communications Director. Do you want to be in jeans when you show up there? No, didn’t think so.

Treat an informational interview like a real interview, no matter who it’s with. Bring copies of your resume. Turn off your cell phone. Wear a suit, or at least dress pants and a professional top. Arrive on time (or early!). Send a thank you note.
