So I have a second interview on Thursday!!! (insert crazy dancing here) It’s for a call center, just something to do until Darling Husband and I figure out where we’re going to relocate to. I’m super excited about it but the problem is that I don’t know what to wear. To the first interview I wore a pencil skirt and jacket with a white ruffled shirt underneath. I don’t think wearing the same outfit is appropriate. Any ideas ladies?

I would wear something else for sure. Maybe dress pants, jacket and a basic shirt? Good luck!

I would definitely wear a suit with a cotton collared shirt underneath. Maybe with some pearls. You want to look professional so they can tell you are taking the job seriously. Congratulations! Getting an interview (especially 2nd interview) is the hardest part!

I’ll usually go slightly more casual for a second interview. I do what I like to call a faux suit, which basically means the same number of pieces of a suit & same purpose but not the typical button down, slacks/skirt and jacket. So, I’ll do a skirt, nice blouse and a cardigan or a pair of slacks, a blouse and maybe a funkier jacket. So, same pieces to give the illusion of a suit, but not . . . does that make sense?

Suit with a collared shirt underneath. No doubt about it. You always want to dress to impress them and you want them to take you seriously. I also suggest not to wear a lot of jewelry and keep it simple. This will give you good tips:

I think you definitely should wear a suit again – just switch up the shirt underneath. Generally when you go in for your second interview, you’re meeting with even more senior people than your first interview (their job is to weed out the good ones from the bad ones for their bosses). I would definitely NOT go more casual since these are the people you REALLY want to impress on the second interview. Good luck!!!

I agree with Lisa..I wouldn’t dress less casual. I always have worn another suit for a 2nd interview. And if you only have one very nice suit, just change the color of the blouse. I’ve done that in the past. They most likely won’t remember what suit you wore the first time. And even if they do, it’s still better to dress professional, then to wear a different outfit that is more casual. Just my two cents! Good luck..hope you get the job!
