Q & A – ASK JESSE

Jesse LancasterQuestion: What color shirt is best for job interviews?

Answer: Unless you’re applying to work as a graphic designer or other artistic talent, a job interview isn’t the place to show off every facet of your personal sense of style. Instead of wearing your most unique look, showcase your ability to create a professional appearance by selecting a traditional look for your interview.

Your first choice for an interview shirt is standard white, followed by light blue. Save the shirts with stripes, checks, and bold colors for later. Your tie need not be limited to a “power tie,” but should be conservative in tone.
